Highway 61

Quirky little indie films may be a dime-a-dozen, but this one is definitely worth the price of admission. Pokey (Don McKellar) is a small-town barber in rural Canada who agrees to drive to New Orleans with a woman, who may or may not be a drug dealer, to bury the corpse of a dead slacker, who may or may not be her brother. It's no easy journey, as a guy named Satan, who may or may not be the devil, seems to have a claim on the body. And while this may or may not be to everyone's taste, it makes for a truly inspired road picture.
