Train on the Brain is a strange little documentary done by Alison Murray back in 2000. Ms Alison goes on a Hobo-inspired journey across Canada and the United States, climbing on-and-off freight trains like it's everyday business.
For someone who has never done this, the 50-minute documentary puts forth a view of life that's often not considered by most. More than once it had me wonder if, armed solely with a bottle of water and a knapsack of necessities, climbing a random train to get to my destination -- any destination -- would be something I'd do.
Bonus: soundtrack is done by Beck.
