Wow...it has taken 4 years since the trailer was released to [see] the final product.
Hopefully, it was worth the wait!
Not quite...but, it's nowhere near as bad as its IMDb rating suggests.
How many directors do you need to make a film? One...usually does it!
Here, 6 are credited...the result: A bit of a mess.
It's gritty...drug trafficking, drug abuse, sex work, sexual violence, it's all here...with some bravado performances.
Pity...the directors screwed it up.
BLACK TAR ROAD is a gritty, dark, love story between two women, Heather and Charlie, who meet at a desolate truck stop. Charlie McElroy (Amber Lee) is a drug mule, who mules drugs for an operation that is run out of an interstate truck stop. After Charlie hangs around town where she meets Heather Plath, (Noelle Messier) a hardened truck stop prostitute who's spent her life in the rural landscape. Few films are more despairing and yet, curiously, so hopeful as this one, which argues that even at the very end of the road, at the final extremity, we can find some solace in the offer and acceptance of love. These women fall in love with each other.
