Saw this film last night. It seems this ‘almost’ straight to dvd [sounds strange; straight to video sounds better, but obviously now terribly dated] movie hasn’t received very good write-ups; with most commentators seemingly implying the film is merely a Tarantino rip off. As if he was the inventor of snappy, off plot, dialogue scenes and non-linear narrative structures.
The fact is I found the movie had more in common with Michael Mann; heavy on the pop music, close up shots of car parts, a certain saturated colour palette, and European art house, with framed empty shots held just that little bit too long. Even one might add a little bit of Lynchian surrealism.
Apparently the film’s style is being tagged neo-new-wave.
