A Wonderful, Real Excursion Jan. 28 2010
By I. Brown - Published on Amazon.com
I saw Bass Ackwards recently at Sundance, and it was phenomenal. The acting, done by many "non-actors" draws you in, and the writing and improvisation by the film's director and lead, Linas Phillips is heartwarming without being overly sentimental and funny without being cheap. Speaking of cheap, this film was made with a very small budget but looks quite beautiful. It's a road movie, and so it can meander at times, but I dare you to watch this film and come away feeling regret. You won't.

A low-key winner that draws you in and holds you Feb. 6 2012
By Terry Doolittle - Published on Amazon.com
Watched Bass Ackwards on a whim and don't regret it at all. Watching this gem is like drifting quietly in a boat down a river - you will enjoy the experience enormously if you take the time to look around you as you go. Linas Phillips gets the idea of the drifting road trip spot on and his frequent encounters along the way provide a series of vignettes which impress by their very non-spectacular nature - no serial killers, aliens, spies or bank robbers - just people of various ilks, each of whom contributes to the overall impressionist human picture Phillips is painting.
In all, this proved a very satisfying movie to watch and in the times we live in, one with a refreshingly mundane, and with it positive, outlook on life. Highly recommended.
Nothing Happens Jan. 2 2014
By Daniel G. Lebryk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Independent film is a wonderful thing; it gives a voice to so many more people than just those that can get their projects made through mainstream production. I love independent film. Bass Ackwards, not so much.

This is a film that just doesn't want to end. Linas leaves his girl friend to work on a Lama farm. He obtains a chopped in half VW Microbus some hippies parked there many years ago. The film is a retelling of Linas' trip across the United States to see his parents. I felt like the film spent the whole time in Nebraska, long flat straight roads with nothing but Wal Drugs signs along the way. It was that boring. There were moments when something interesting could have happened; instead the interesting thing ends before anything happens. I hate to say it; Linas Philips (the director, actor, and writer) is probably not the most interesting person in the world to hang around with. And this film makes me sit in his rattrap VW van for what seems like weeks.

I understand independent film. I get some of the most complicated films in the world. This film just left me looking for the fast forward button. Nothing happened. Nothing. I won't spoil the end. The Brown Bunny is a way better film. The road trip part of that film is infinitely more interesting than this.

Oh so long, oh so boring, oh so sorry I watched this.
Driving Bass Ackwards Jan. 20 2011
By Ray Sola - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I know it is a road movie, but there is way too many shots of just driving for long periods. Other than that, there is not a plot. If you watch the DVD extras, you find that is the case. They made it up as they went along.

Why did I rent this movie?? Sept. 6 2011
By Joe D. - Published on Amazon.com
Somehow the trailer got me to rent this film. I suppose if you were out of gas, had no cell phone, and you were stuck at a campsite in the woods, and help was not due to arrive for a day or so, watching this would be better that doing NOTHING. Bu it is sooooo boring I started skipping ahead half way through hoping there was some excitement, some action or SOMETHING.

There are many, many films to buy or rent that should be on your list above this one.
