ANYWHERE U.S.A. - Jeremy Dylan Lanni (2017)

A thought provoking movie that is only 6 minutes and 48 seconds long has no commercial potential, so why the Hell would anybody bother spending all their time and money making one?
Welcome to The Dungeon!!

Depending on how old you are, you might remember a time when people wrote songs that had forethought and meaning like Dylan's "The Times Are A Changing," or Buffalo Springfield's "For What It's Worth," or anything by Phil Ochs or Pete Seeger! That's kind of how I feel about "Anywhere U.S.A."

It's just a diner that could be anywhere in the U.S.A., or as our good friend Lord Litter said after viewing the movie, in Germany, or really almost anywhere in the world!
There's an absolutely amazing cast that includes this fun-loving adorable young couple that work in the diner, and there's a handful of customers! That's it, but how will they interact in 6 minutes and 48 seconds?

Keith (Wake Up America!) Stevenson is one of the more hostile customers and his companion is....

...Kendrah (Like A Butterfly) McKay, who has a personality that stings like a bee!

The great Peter (Conjuring Orson) Jason is the typical grumpy old fart! I say typical, because I've met lots of guys like this is my life, in fact, I've been accused of being one myself!

Jo D. (John of God the Movie) Jonz is a soldier just trying to enjoy his meal!

This is Kevin (The Amazing Spider-Man) McCorkle as the uptight used car salesman......

.....And Calum (American Horror Story) Dench as his ice cream eating grandson!

Juliette (Gotham) Beavan and Cela (Best Fake Friends) Scott are the blondies in the booth!

Actor and voice over artiste supreme, Stuart (Congo) Pankin works in the kitchen!

Jared (Vineland) Wernick is one half of the innocent couple, and....

........Alex (Christmas in the Heartland) Preble is the other half! They both manage to cause problems without even trying!
So that's the cast, you just need to go watch it, because I'm not going to tell you what happens! A lot goes on in a short period of time, and I will say that I was shocked by the ending!
Jeremy Dylan Lanni is a gifted film maker with something to say, and he has given you a nice X-mas gift absolutely free! All you have to do is go watch it, and you can do that right HERE!!

This surrealistic 1969 Buck Owens' album and Jeremy's movie with the same title might not seem like they have much in common, but they are both short and to the point! The longest song on this LP is "Keep On Your Keepin' On" at 2:40, and "Georgia Peach" is only 1:17 minutes long, just the way I like it! I was thinking about it the other day, a TV series that runs for a couple of seasons is like a 20 hour movie, I'll take 6:48 minutes of quality over 20 hours of crap any time! Thanx Jeremy!

Impressed at how much storytelling happens in 7 minutes. And shocked, too.

Glad you watched it KD! I'm sure you agree it was well worth it!

I don't want to color any perceptions with my own, but yeah. I would be interested in the filmmaker's thoughts on his work, though.

It's obvious to me that when we model irrational anger and hate and hurt in front of our kids and other young ones around us, we are telling them that it's perfectly okay to take up arms and mimic irrational anger and hate and hurt to others. Is there understanding? No. No attempt at all to understand or converse, just permission to hate and hurt anyone we feel like hating or hurting. This is the message modeled to the people, and most painfully to our children, by our current commander-in-chief and his family and followers.
