Weirdly compelling motorcycle movie: Roadside Prophets

This 1992 film was written and directed by Abbe Wool (she also wrote the critically acclaimed Sid and Nancy screenplay.) 

‘Prophets…’ is a wacky road-movie that stars L.A. punk icon John Doe and the Beastie Boys’ Adam Horovitz. They’re two guys on Harleys, riding from L.A. to Nevada, looking for a place to dispose of a comrade’s ashes.

Wool roped in an incredible cast of supporting actors, from John Cusack to Timothy Leary (the LSD guru) and Arlo Guthrie. The script is antic, but the cast makes it all work. Doe also scored the film, and the music’s great.
