inventive road movie
| Original Score: 4/5
Makes what is familiar seem fresh.
| Original Score: B
A clever and lively entry from Australia than introduced the world to Frances O'Connor (A.I.).
A fresh and fast paced Australian drama about the mystery that resides in all people.
Imagine Terrence Malick's Badlands done as black comedy, with the rural atmosphere of Psycho and dialogue rubbed against flint.
The picture's velocity, style, irreverence, unexpected playful humor and new take on the noir genre make it worth a look.
Kiss or Kill is, after a shaky start, surprisingly good.
If this scenario sounds like stock film-noir plotting, Bill Bennett ... makes something utterly fresh and, for all its scent of evil, invigorating out of it.
A chaotic-but-pointless exercise in mediocrity.
| Original Score: 2/4
It isn't the first hellbound road movie to end up on a nuclear testing site in the desert (there's always Kalifornia), but Bennett makes you feel as though you haven't seen it before.
Gives the premise a few twists that make things interesting.
A cleverly disguised whodunit -- a murder mystery that looks, feels and moves unlike another other murder mystery.
Bennett's screenplay is consistent, completely concerned with the haphazard and the jogging of conventional expectation.
I've seen countless road movies, but this one felt different, as if it had an unbalanced flywheel.
| Original Score: 3/4
In some ways, it's a remarkable recovery for writer-director Bill Bennett, whose much-tampered-with Sandra Bullock vehicle Two If by Sea was almost unwatchable.
Really does feel original and authentically creepy.
The performances are lovely, the odd characters engaging and the filmmaking interesting.
A mildly promising tale of lovers on the run.
Bennett tries to shake up the formula.
