He takes off on a road trip with a morose Russian rocker (Whigham) and a sassy Goth girl (Sossamon), pitching up at a weird trailer park community run by benevolent old codger Kneller (a perfectly cast Tom Waits). It's an inspired, clever and offbeat spin on 'The Wizard of Oz', of course, with Waits standing in for the Wiz.
