Kill the Moonlight

This low-budget early ’90s cult film is best known for featuring Beck on the soundtrack and inspiring his hit "Loser” (the sample "I’m a driver, I’m a winner, things are gonna change, I can feel it” is taken from here), but with Kill the Moonlight director Steven Hanft created the perfect Generation X anti-hero in Chance, a stock car racing dreamer whose intent to raise enough money to soup up his Camaro for the big race leads him to petty theft, selling drugs and screwing his drug supplier’s girlfriend. This beautifully flawed slacker classic has finally been granted its due. (Plexifilm, www.plexifilm.com)
