Critic Reviews for Mean Dreams
Not a great film in the same vein as Badlands and Pretty Poison, but a very good one that is well worth seeing.
One of those sparse projects where you wonder what excited the filmmakers through each stage of the production process, and why the answer to that question isn't more obvious.
Son Lux's percussive and atonal score combined with the kids constantly looking over their shoulders lend their escapes a sense of immediacy and danger.
While the plot often travels familiar paths and even the impressive camerawork is evocative of other films, "Mean Dreams" has a few story tricks up its sleeve.
Nathan Morlando's "Mean Dreams" may use a time-honored premise - young lovers on the lam (see: "Badlands") - but it does so with such quiet, gently appealing assurance that it makes the template seem fresh again.
