Not just a biker film, 13 December 2001
Author: (rob@densum.demon.co.uk) from South London, England

I saw 'The Loveless' years and years ago but I'm still searching the internet for it; it must have been on TV because I didn't see it at the cinema and it isn't available on video. I watched the film because it had bikes in it and was amazed - it has a great sound-track, stunning visuals with glistening chrome and shots of motor oil that you can almost touch (the repair scenes in the garage).

The first time you see the film the ending is a surprise - after you've thought about it for a while it becomes obvious that it's the only ending the film could have.

I'm stunned that this film seems to have vanished. It is impossible to obtain on tape or DVD and even some of my film going friends that reckon they like Kathryn Bigelow have never heard of it.

Bring it out on DVD - NOW!
