Highly watchable mid 70s car culture film
5 April 2006 | by (Tokerau Beach NZ) – See all my reviews

Highly watchable mid 70s car culture film. I first saw it on release when Paul Le Mat was familiar to younger audiences from his role as fading hot rodder John Milner in George Lucas "American Graffiti".

Not an existential roadie like Monte Hellman's "Two Lane Blacktop". Aloha is a conventionally plotted 'kids on the run' affair. However, the cinematography is excellent with vibrant pop cultural references such as Hollywood billboard signage featuring Ringo Starr and Elton John tours and albums of the time. There is also a poignant quality to several scenes including Roses mothers Tequila sodden reminiscing, and, a road bound Lincoln Continental driving childless couple who offer support to the young outlaws.

Gritty details of the unromantic side of Californian life for working people ad unexpected depth to a teen genre picture.
