It's Impossible to Learn to Plow by Reading Books (1988)

An American film by Richard Linklater, starring Daniel Johnston.
A young man travels to meet people he knows.
This was totally pointless. No plot, only one main character and very little dialogue. The video was mostly underexposed and shaky from hand holding shots. The audio was a cross between muffled and shouting into a garbage can trashy echo. Daniel Johnston was the only good part of the film. He asks the main character about his shirt and gives him a tape. The parts that irked me most were sections of radio and TV channel surfing. Seriously? Come on! With all of the 7-up product placement, he could have gotten a Star Wars size budget and made a better film. Overall, a movie about nothing. It would have been better off not being made at all. I rate this bad. DO NOT WATCH!!!
