#TBT Flix Not to Miss: ‘Gas Food Lodging’

Gas Food Lodging (1992) by Allison Anders is one of those films that has stayed with me over the years. It resonated at the time I saw it as well as years later when I decided to revisit it. Anders has directed a few gems, but this is my favorite. It’s gritty without being mean, hopeful without being saccharine, displaying a level of honesty not often seen in current films. Ione Skye‘s rich and textured performance as a girl who’s a romantic at heart gives the film its center.

You can see Gas Food Lodging on DVD from Netflix or streaming on Amazon, Vudu, and Xbox video.
