The Men Who Sleep in Trucks

I'm indebted to Mark at So it Goes - as you can see Mark watches 500+ films a year, so you don't have to. Instead, take a look at his shortlist and cherry pick your own. That's how I came across The Men Who Sleep in Trucks. Made by Marc Isaacs in 2016 and commissioned by BBC3, it's a seventeen minute vox-pop with long distance lorry drivers filmed in various truck stops just before they get their heads down for the night. Once you've got past a bunch of fat lads without their tops on, it reveals just how sad, lonely and isolated these kings of the open road really are. Compelling viewing.


  1. Aw thanks for the shout out John, and I'm glad you found something on the list to seek out and enjoy!

  2. I've just reviewed two of Marc Isaacs' earlier films; Someday My Prince Will Come and Philip and His Seven Wives for The Geek Show. You can see the review here;

    I cannot recommend Isaacs enough!
