Zzyzx #atozchallenge

         The small budget film Zzyzx (2006) was later retitled Burned perhaps so that it would not be confused with the similarly named Zyzzyx Road movie that came out about the same time.  I have not seen the latter film but I have seen the former and thought it was a quite good suspense thriller.  Partly due to the drug induced state of the characters, the strange story line, and the desert setting, Zzyzx is very dreamlike.

         Strangely enough though the official title on IMDb is Burned, it's listed on Netflix as Zzyzx.  It's all very confusing, but the movie itself is confusing to some.  And since dreams are confusing...well go figure.  If you do watch this film be sure to stay until the end.  There's a pretty nifty conclusion.

          And speaking of conclusions, this is the last A to Z post for April.  Hope you enjoyed my movie choices and I'd love to hear from you if you watch any of them.  I want to know what your thoughts are about the films.  

         Have you seen Zzyzx (Burned)?    Do you think desert settings in film often seem dreamlike?   Are you ready for summer?
