The Road Movie by director Dmitrii Kalashnikov is a wild documentary that offers fascinating insight into Russian life through the dashboard camera footage of its drivers. Kalashnikov created the film solely out of dashcam footage, which reveals that a great deal of very weird stuff happen all the time and the surprising number of people who do inexplicable things when they don’t realize that they’re being filmed.
The epitome of a you-have- to-see- it-to- believe-it documentary, THE ROAD MOVIE captures a wide range of spectacles through the windshield—including a comet crashing down to Earth, an epic forest fire, and no shortage of angry motorists taking road rage to wholly new and unexpected levels—all accompanied by bemused commentary from unseen and often stoic drivers and passengers.
Russian dash cam compilations are some of the most magnificently insane and hilarious things I've ever seen. And now there's a documentary of them opening Friday, and I can't wait. Just watch the trailer: https://t.co/W4Dt4lpWo2 https://t.co/yW6KcZHRsi

Welcome to The Road Movie, a magical neverland of drunken maniacs nonchalantly laughing their asses off as they float down a stream after driving off a bridge. Who CAN'T relate?? #TheRoadMovie opens 1/19 – https://t.co/EFjiy4CCda has deets. pic.twitter.com/8fTZyxZgCv
