The film follows the COMMUTER, as he embarks on his daily drive from Orange County to Downtown Los Angeles along Interstate 5 Freeway and California Highway 101. During the commute, he fields phone calls from his office, deals with clients and the pains and aggravations of the most horrific traffic on the West Coast. A satirical look at coping with the ever growing problem of too many cars and not enough road. During his drive, the Commuter finds time to worry, relax and contemplate his life while extending various philosophical views. Written by Marc Wasserman

Road Rage has nothing on Wasserman's Diatribe !!!
10 August 2009 | by guestar57See all my reviews

Starring: Marc Wasserman ,Nicole Oring & Tom Sizemore. 'Commute' is an jaw-dropping piece of film.

Watching Wasserman do a monologue while trapped in traffic starts off daunting and then you realize,He is Us and We is Him behind the wheel.

Thinking of cast he does have Porn Star Nicole Oring(Yes,she plies her trade here too) as his secretary and Film Celeb Tom Sizemore in cameo .

All the subjects he monologues have bearing on our lives and "We Have Been There and Have Done That" too ! Great film and to think Ford Austin was involved , "Is a hoot' . Score card: Filming in real time traffic= 10 points. Dream sequence= 10 points Extras at end = 10 points. GETTING Tom Sizemore = 20 points
