Super Reviewer

August 7, 2007
There are moments in this film that are so searing, of such brutal honesty, that it becomes difficult to keep watching. Both leads absolutely bare (both literally and figuratively) themselves on screen, bravely, encompassing and embracing their fucked up characters.

The film is structured like a killers-on-the-run road movie (Badlands, Kalifornia, Natural Born Killers) intercut with interview segments with one of the characters. The structure has its strengths and weaknesses, and the plot can be pedestrian at times, but it never betrays the characters. Michael Winterbottom has proven time and time again that he is a multi-talented director, and does an excelent job here, neither romanticizing what happens nor descending to the level of clinical study. The film is, first and foremost, empathic.

I don't know who I would recommend this to, other than myself, as this is most definitely not an audience type film but independent art.

I love that, basically, the soundtrack is the album No Need To Argue by the Cranberries. Winterbottom should go back to fucked-up road movie and leave Iraq alone.

A dark road movie that isn't all that pleasing to look at, but compels you to do so anyway. Strong performances from Amanda Plummer and Saskia Reeves and careful direction add to the realism, but the film isn't as successful as it could've been.
