Detroit Unleaded (2007) Rola Nashef

Watched as part of the 'Selection from the Collection Part 5' at the Phoenix Art Museum courtesy of No Festival Required.

The longest film in the collection, Detroit Unleaded is a 19 minute piece about a young man going to work on the night shift at a gas station. Think Clerks but with the jokes being there as jokes rather than the entire point of the movie. There's meaning behind the humour and while it has a light heart, it's still impressive from a serious standpoint.
