Remember midnight movies from the 1970s? Those after-hour slices of cult celluloid that stunned audiences with their mash-up of genres, innovative narratives and psychedelic imagery? Get ready to relive those hallucinogenic halcyon days again, as a stranger known only as "The Rambler" (Mulroney) is released from prison and anxious to build a new life for himself.

Coming home to a faithless girlfriend (Lyonne), he quickly realizes his old life is truly behind him. With the promise of a job and some stability from his brother, the Rambler embarks on a cross-country journey to what hopefully is a new start.

Like Odysseus and other travelers on the road-to-wisdom before him, the Rambler -- armed only with his cowboy hat, shades, a guitar and traveling sack -- encounters all manner of obstacles and dangers on his road to redemption, including a scientist with a machine that records dreams onto VHS, a cab driver with an unnatural love of t he original Frankenstein film, mummies in the backs of trucks and exploding heads.
