Clever and cool little noir.
18 April 2000 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

Kurt Voss must be the most underrated director in the history of the cinema. I became a fan after travelling to Thousand Oaks for a screening of his excellent "Horseplayer," primarily due to The Pixies presence on the soundtrack. I was impressed, to say the least.

Do not let the presence of a post-John Hughes Molly Ringwald dissuade you, "Baja" is not to be missed. A clever and mean twisting and turning plot gives way to an unusually compassionate ending. Lance Henrickson proves not only to be a great tough-guy (as per usual), but a fantastic comedian. He deftly delivers some of the most acid-tongued lines in recent memory, "What is there a grape-pickers convention going on here?"

Voss' directorial style is understated, brilliantly allowing his sardonic wit to bubble forth without pretension. His dialogue is taught and ripe with honest laughs, rather than pandering to the plethora of pop-culture references masquerading as "snappy dialogue" in so many neo-noirs today.

Check out "Baja" and keep an eye on Kurt Voss.
