Bagdad Cafe

I heard about this movie when I was in high school (not that I am going to tell you how long ago that was now because it is just starting to sound like a long time ago), but I didn’t watch it back then. It’s probably a good thing that I didn’t because I wouldn’t have appreciated it as much. This movie starts off really, really strange and is quirky all the way through. But it is captivating. I couldn’t wait to find out what would happen next. It has nothing do to with Iraq (where Baghdad is), but is rather set in the American southwest. (****)
