Movie Info

The black-and-white minimalist drama The Motorcycle observes three deliberately unremarkable lives, and their "chance" interactions thanks to the shifting ownership of the titular vehicle. The film begins with Chris (Christopher Pratt, who purchases the chopper, then segues to Ingrid (Paula Rester) who steals it, and finally transitions to Brandi (Brandi Perkins) who receives it from Ingrid as a gift. Director Gordon deliberately penned a banal and unremarkable story, but his emphasis lies elsewhere: on finding poetry in the understated gesture and in behavioral minutiae. He concentrates not on the motorcycle itself, but on the nature of the characters' interactions - characters who might never have encountered one another independently of the cycle.

As slice-of-life movies go, Motorcycle is a generous portion of humanity and significant gestures.

Top Critic

It's not a bad film, and it has the makings of a potential cult classic. After all, everyone likes a movie about nothing every now and then.

Audience Reviews for Motorcycle

A very moving drama with very little dialogue, but so much is said by the silence and facial expressions. You know so well what the characters are thinking and feeling. Good direction.
