    Last homeless person I gave money too said, and I quote, “That’s all you
    got???” and I was 15 at the time?

    Ich verstehe nicht. Er wollte nicht ihm zu auto waschen. I don’t get it. He
    didn’t want his car washed…?

  4. plasticopia1 says:

    Very wonderful film. I imagine the people who found it to be pretentious or
    otherwise complained to be the ones who walked by the homeless man without
    dipping into their pockets. Nothing wrong with that–just different

    i agree with 2amara34 and saynotogreens. he told the guy not to wash his
    car, to leave it alone. in a way the homeless man disrespected him by
    continuing to wash it and then he EXPECTS to get paid for that act? no. it
    was pretty childish of the businessman to get it really dirty then sneak
    away but i mean, really. it IS pretty pretentious. long on symbolism and
    short on fact and rationale. XD?

  9. goldengolden says:

    Oscar nominated? Really? Many unanswered questions. Why does he continue to
    wash the car even after being told harshly not to, if he is so self
    righteous why does he beg in the first place, the man went to him to show
    that he doesn’t have change and the beggar shows he is upset…how
    ungrateful of the beggar…good acting but no wonder it didn’t win the

    Neveroqtno, Az se razplakah….breathtaking really…?

  13. radulTM says:

    2amara34, how often do you eat??

  14. 2amara34 says:

    why did the homeless man run after him, he could offer washing the car
    without return as the man gave him money everyday without waiting for
    return. i did not like the story

    Brilliant. Nothing like a homeless guy to make you feel shame.

  16. DukeLongfellow says:

    This film is wonderfully simple, minimalist and to the point, yet it can
    evoke a pretty strong emotional impact. I saw it not too long ago in a
    class and was fairly impressed. It doesn’t try to be anything more than it
    is and that’s what makes it a worthwhile watch.

  17. Francisco Merçon says:

    De sensibilidade rara. Muito tocante. Emocionado.

  20. CrystalJupiter says:

    It’s really weird seeing Bottle Rocket in both its short and film form.
    It’s nothing like any of his other films visually, and I didn’t even know
    it was directed by him until I had finished his other films.?

  21. y61mean says:

    oh man. This should have been stayed as a short film.?

  27. Denise Segell says:

    Wow, I can’t believe I found this on Youtube. This is a film I worked on in
    1992. I remember it like yesterday. Unfortunately… I recorded over the
    “rough cut.” But boy, look who’s careers were launched. Hmmm.?

    Reminds me so much of a Jean-Luc Godard film. The music, the black & white,
