  • 4.1
This is the remarkable story of the vehicle that became an icon. Anyone who has driven a Volkswagen Bus already knows that it's a nostalgic tale of freedom, love, friendship and adventure. THE BUS playfully explores how a post-WWII German utility vehicle evolved into a cultural icon that represents freedom and the open road; defining and connecting generations of fun-lovers everywhere. Beginning in Germany with the vehicle's creation, into a wild ride that changes the world forever, THE BUS is an adventure from beginning to end. From Wolfsburg to Hollywood, Burning Man to Baja, people from all walks of life share their stories and passion in THE BUS.

This documentary left me with a greater respect for automotive style and the culture surrounding the VW bus, the freedom it provided, a culture quickly crushed by corporate capitalism and throw-away consumerism. It was not very safe to drive but its functionality and aesthetic beauty were tremendous compensations. I, too, wish I could have experienced a VW bus road trip.

Great fun. Almost makes want to run out and buy a bus. Using the musician really tied the film together.
