Thelma and Louise in Italy with teenage lesbians - Bravo!
| Original Score: 4/5
Stambrini and her cinematographer, Fabio Cianchetti, give the proceedings a high-tech, energetic look that keeps the thrill and entertainment levels high.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Containing elements from more than a few of its similarly themed predecessors, the loopy but tautly staged Gasoline still manages to be engrossing throughout its brief running time.
A welcome slice of moodiness in a film season hell-bent on happiness at all costs.
| Original Score: B
Tautly acted, fairly sexy and atmospheric.
Although inviting comparisons to such movies as 'Thelma & Louise,' 'Bound' and 'Boys Don't Cry,' this dark nighttime film stands on its own quite nicely.
A notable debut for director Monica Stambrini.
| Original Score: 2/5
As time tells (remember The Girl?), decidedly lesbian features, unless they have something more enlightening to show or tell, should stick the pornography market.
| Original Score: F
| Original Score: 2/5
Stambrini's dialogue seems especially dull, and the screenplay lacks dramatic urgency.
| Original Score: 1/4
By the time we get to the big finish, it feels as if we've merely been poked repeatedly in the ribs with a really good-looking stick.
For those who just can't get enough of Thelma & Louise or any of its numerous imitators, this birra's for you.
Impressively stylish but curiously empty.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Benzina has a hip look to it. The film is set in a particularly bleak urban landscape and has plenty of noir elements and edge, visually speaking, but the story is ridiculous.
A film that feels like a Europeanized compendium of just about every indie alt-action movie cliche of the past decade.
[Director Monica] Stambrini drapes the film in a cultural scramble-suit.
| Original Score: 2/4
By the time Lenni's and Stella's story has played out, the writers must have laid down their pens with a sigh. Even the subtitle guy was probably relieved.
Devoid of originality, Gasoline is at least a model of modesty -- a road movie that goes nowhere slowly, and ends up where it began.
