Devoid of originality, Gasoline is at least a model of modesty -- a road movie that goes nowhere slowly, and ends up where it began.

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.

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.

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.

Impressively stylish but curiously empty.

For those who just can't get enough of Thelma & Louise or any of its numerous imitators, this birra's for you.

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.

Stambrini's dialogue seems especially dull, and the screenplay lacks dramatic urgency.

As time tells (remember The Girl?), decidedly lesbian features, unless they have something more enlightening to show or tell, should stick the pornography market.

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.

Stambrini and her cinematographer, Fabio Cianchetti, give the proceedings a high-tech, energetic look that keeps the thrill and entertainment levels high.

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.
