BeschreibungBob and Sam are two regular guys chewing the fat, putting the world to rights over a bottle of Jack Daniels and a game of poker, apparently trapped in an empty bar-room in this latter-day America Waiting for Godot. Conversation is rapid-fire and ranges from God and fishing to gambling and art, building to a deeply-felt exploration of the values of mainstream America. What emerges through their extraordinary dialogue is a portrait of a culture caught in a painful flux; a dichotomy between a nostalgic, reactionary sentiment and a desire to forge ahead with something new.
