The Road Movie: A Documentary Made Entirely From Real Russian Dashcam Footage

Keep blowing lady, I think you've almost got it!

This is the trailer for The Road Movie, a documentary made entirely from Russian dashcam footage. It looks exhilarating. You know, I bet they could make a full-length Russian dashcam documentary every week and there would still be plenty of footage left over to make a daily eight-hour show that runs until the end of time. It's like a wintery Mad Max movie over there. We should plan a vacation. "I've always wanted to see the Kremlin." Yeah I'm thinking Fiji -- somewhere far, far away from these lunatics.

Keep going for the action-packed trailer.

Thanks to GloryGamer, who agrees dashcam footage is some of the best footage to watch when you're lying in bed at night and want to dream about super insane accidents.

    Russia. Giving Florida a run for it's money.

    Apparently, California invaded the USSR and won us the Cold War.

    If you're putting up a bunch of text over the top of insane video footage, and you're doing it a word at a time to maximize the distraction, u r dooin it rong.

    In a way, I understand your frustration, but I still ended up wanting to watch the whole thing so I guess they're doing it kinda right.

    I actually disagree. I thought that was one of the more effective trailers I've seen in a long time. It did exactly what a trailer is meant to do: convey the essential nature of the film to the intended audience without over-disclosing any scenes or plot points (i.e. - no spoilers), and wet the viewer's appetite for more.

    The point wasn't to show the insane dash cam footage, but to convince the viewer of the trailer that the footage is SO insane that the film itself is an essential experience. The text excerpted from the published reviews, played over the top of the crazy footage, accomplishes just that.

    Well SOME of us don't enjoy having blueballs!

    On the topic of blueballs, we can all agree. :)

    Could've been worse than you would ever know
    Oh, the dashboard melted
    But we still have the video
