    ★★★★

    A moral tale of two lovers on the run from their choices, from the law, from themselves. With virtuosic cinematography well ahead of its time, you can almost feel early film-noir evolving as the film plays out. One of the only films I've seen with a gun-loving protagonist with an allergy to violence, a beautiful dichotomy that highlights our need for freedom and the true cost of isolation.

    ★★★★½

    Ace directing and a compelling story. Way ahead of its time. A quiet movie that sizzles and burns with emotion and social urgency just under the surface.

    ★★★★

    Belongs in a trilogy with Benny's Video and Afterschool. Haunting, absorbing work from an exciting independent American filmmaker.

    Green Room

    A film about nothing exploiting screen violence for entertainment and shock value. A clumsy script that thinks very highly of itself. A sack of shit.
