| Quirky, brilliant and culty
Going Nomad is not only a movie, it is an invitation to join a mock-cult of asphalt nomads who roam the streets of Manhattan in search for the perfect ride. It is a true feel-good movie that cradles the viewer in its blissful combination of acting (Damian Young, of Hal Hartley fame, is brilliant), music and cinematography. Never have the streets of New York looked so inviting, never have one been so fascinated by a person who, in essence, does nothing with his life and never has driving a car seemed as mythical and spiritual as surfing . This is a true masterpice and a must for all "searchers".
