There is no secret that I think of Kathryn Bigelow as a talented and smart MILF.

And this, her first feature film is smooth as a sunset.

It feels like the biker-lovechild from a David Lynch and Jim Jarmush collaboration.

Lynch probably saw this the very day he decided to make Wild at Heart. And had to re-watch before he came up with Twin Peaks.

Not much to say about the plot because nothing special really happens here; Willem Dafoe and the others mainly smokes cigarettes, insults whoever passes by, poses like 50’s biker pin-ups, sweating and being to cool for school.

It’s totally sexy… but sexy in the way a desperate woman can seem sexy when you are really drunk and should have gone home a few drinks ago.

Just the way I like it.
