Tonight’s Motorcycle Film – The Best Bar in America
A whiskey-fuelled writing assignment takes one man on an epic motorcycle road trip through the bars and taverns across the American West. Motorcycling, sleeping on the ground, chasing mermaids, & drinking in America’s most legendary taverns, Sanders experiences first-hand the brotherhood of the bike and bar. Along the way he gets advice from Ernest Hemingway & Jim Harrison on writing & drinking
The photography is brilliant, especially when it comes to the “on the road” shots. They captured the expanse and beautiful desolation of the rural west.
The “motorcycle” is a BMW outfit. The whole tale is thoughtful and deep. The journey becomes a search for Sanders’ identity. Contains some colourful language and some brief adult scenes but is very watchable.
This film which you can watch in advance of the meeting is included as part of Amazon Prime membership or can be rented from Amazon Prime for £3.49.
