Bud Clay (Vincent Gallo) is a hopeless lover on a long road to find Daisy (Chloë Sevigny), a girl he once left. True to Gallo’s style, the film is tense and moody, where Bud embarks on a road trip, constantly searching for something unknown.
There are long frames of solitude as he spends most of his time driving around the American countryside, stopping every now and then for a girl who grabs his attention. He’s a recuse. He makes a hasty decision to pursue, and another hasty decision to abandon.
Finally, Bud arrives to his destination where he crosses paths with Daisy again. The long road of confusion, in which Bud led us through, is answered by Daisy. Why did they separate? And why does he hold so much guilt?
The film is controversially recognized for its graphic fellatio scene between the couple. Sevigny commented “It was tough, the toughest thing I've ever done, but Vincent was very sensitized to my needs, very gentle... And we'd been intimate in the past.”
