One of the oddest and least-seen films in the cult canon is the directorial debut of Neil Young—yes, that Neil Young. Human Highway got a limited release in 1982 before decades of being shared amongst fans via dubbed video tapes. Now, a director’s cut is making the rounds of festivals and theaters. Set in a small town next to a leaky nuclear plant, it features Young as an auto mechanic. But the plot is secondary to the campy visuals and warped soundtrack. Opens September 12 at Cinema Qualite.
