| cab driver drunk and stoned in Fairbanks
i didn't hate it but i didn't love it. thought the plot line was hard to girl getting a novel published dating a bugger eating, drunk, drug addicted cab driver? then moving on to his equally whacked out friend? And speaking of whacked----a mailbox? Come on. Really. As a fairbanksan, they could have left that thank you off the end. For a good, poignant, heartwarming story about the north and it's inhabitants watch 'The North' in french. Chronic Town is a Fairbanks I have seen but only a sordid corner of it. Insulting. Didn't like plot line. Didn't like some of the dialogue. Photography not so hot. Music fine.
