Who Is Bozo Texino? — Bill Daniel

“The subterranean and uniquely American folkloric practice of hobo and rail worker graffiti is discovered in this gritty and picaresque artist-made film. Who is Bozo Texino? ostensibly chronicles a search for the story behind a legendary boxcar graffiti—-a simple sketch of a blank-staring cowboy character with the scrawled moniker “Bozo Texino.” In the course of this rambling search, the film uncovers a little-known and almost-extinct subculture and suggests that the moniker drawing tradition is now being kept alive by a new generation of train artists.”
