HUMAN HIGHWAY (1982): The director’s cut version of Neil Young’s mind-bending 1982 post-apocalyptic musical comedy, in which the rock legend writes, directs and stars alongside an eclectic and eccentric cast including Dean Stockwell, Russ Tamblyn, Dennis Hopper, Sally Kirkland and Devo.

Lionel Switch (Young) is a nerdy auto mechanic at a gas station owned by Otto (Stockwell). Otto also owns the adjacent diner, where the waitress (Kirkland) is unpredictable and the cook (Hopper) flat-out volatile. They all live in a town next door to a nuclear plant, but no one seems to worry. Lionel can’t believe that radiation is a real threat, since he’s worked on “almost every radiator in every car in town.” Their ignorance won’t matter much in the end, though, since this will be their last day on earth.
