Carter, played with wry wit by Johnny Sneed, is a floundering music producer in Marfa, Texas, who seems more interested in drinking than working. The morning after a wild party, a hung-over Carter needs a ride. He gets one from Steve (Steve Holzer), who gives Carter a large painting — and turns up dead shortly thereafter. Carter quickly becomes the main suspect. He sets out on a zany quest to prove his innocence, encountering all manner of shady characters in the process. The film, directed by Cory Van Dyke, is a lot of fun — surreal, artistic and existential. Van Dyke and Sneed will both attend the screenings. — Susan Gilmor
