Critic Reviews for Vida Sin Rumbo
At times the perversely slow beat of each scene can irritate, but that's a reasonable price for the film's super-saturated atmosphere.
Its evocation of tough-guy glamour is ridiculously stilted. And it regards the past with absolutely no perspective or wit.
A strange, but compelling amalgam of art film and homage to the American International Pictures biker flicks of the 1960s.
Bigelow's first feature, co-written and co-directed with Monty Montgomery, is a nihilistic meditation on 1950s biker flicks, featuring Willem Dafoe in his first screen role.
Audience Reviews for Vida Sin Rumbo
Bigelow's first film is of interest to her fans only. Everything is slow going in the plot department, but Dafoe is good in his first role as the leader of a biker gang.
Did this movie have a story? You can't even tell, since nothing happens at all. I did not care for this movie, and I don't recommend it.
Kathryn Bigelow's feature debut is an assured, vibrant and detailed biker flick set in evocative 50's small town America. There's not much in the way of plot and the script is basic (but natural) and much of the pleasure of the film is in the way it looks more than what is being said. Interesting that the bikers themselves are rather a peaceful bunch, more interested in shooting the breeze, drinking cola and listening to rock n roll on the jukebox than causing any real trouble - it's the locals, their prejudices, and the sins of a father that lead to the brief but memorable violence. A fascinating flim.
