Storyline

A young woman in L.A. is having a bad day: she's evicted, an audition ends with a producer furious she won't trade sex for the part, and a policeman nabs her for something she didn't do, demanding fellatio to release her. She snaps, grabs his gun, takes his uniform, and leaves him cuffed to a tree where he's soon having a defenseless chat with a homeless man. She takes off on the cop's motorcycle and, for an afternoon, experiences a cop's life. She talks a young man out of suicide and then is plunged into violence after a friendly encounter with two "vatos." She is torn between self-protection and others' expectations. Is there any resolution for her torrent of feelings? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A break from the monotony of Films. Fresh, stylistic, good.
30 November 1998 | by (Pittsburgh, PA USA) – See all my reviews

Bang is a good film. Ash manipulates the story well, and the camera squeezes every bit of it in the frame. Great paradoxes between the real and the absurd. Everything is presented well. Good acting, great story, great drama, great cinematography. Check it out. It is a fresh film, one that stands out from the normal action/ drama that is out there.
