In the wake of "Pulp Fiction"
18 January 2015 | by (Ohio/PA border) – See all my reviews

"Lewis & Clark & George" is a road movie/crime thriller/black comedy about two scumbags who escape from a New Mexican prison, Lewis (Salvator Xuereb) and Clark (Dan Gunther), the former's a murdering psycho with a charismatic spirit and the latter's a computer geek. The escapees immediately start searching for a gold treasure in a lost mine whereupon they hook up with literal gold-digger George (Rose McGowan), who happens to be mute.

The movie has that quirky, "hip" flare of movies of the mid-to-late 90s, like "Pulp Fiction," "Michael," "Mojave Moon," "The Way of the Gun" and "American Psycho." If you have a taste for these types of films you might like "Lewis & Clark & George," which I find better than all of 'em except the first two.

The fact that the two main protagonists are criminal scum and George isn't much nobler works against the movie because it's impossible to root for them, but the film makes up for it in numerous ways. For one, it is consistently amusing and sometimes laugh-out-loud funny, like the massacre of a group of annoying vacationers. Once you get the joke, you're able to kick back and enjoy the zaniness despite the characters' moral offensiveness. Secondly, the style of the film is entertaining, including the cool soundtrack (I realize describing it as "cool" is lame, but I didn't want to use "hip" again; and "pop" doesn't quite fit). Thirdly, there are at least two quality females in the cast with the focus on McGowan's character. Although George is an increasingly despicable character, Rose is certainly a uniquely alluring and curvy woman and she's in her prime here. Needless to say, this film's a must for McGowan fans. The other female is Paula Sorge as the lonely and hyper-sexed trailer trash. Fourthly, the climax offers a fitting ending for the ignoble "protagonists."

Another comparison would be 1966's "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" as both films take place in the American West, are very stylized, and feature three characters vying for treasure with the inevitable mishaps and double-crosses thereof. The differences being that "Lewis & Clark & George" takes place in the modern day and one of the three protagonists is a (hot) woman (there are, incidentally, zero notable women in "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly), not to mention the movie's only half as long at 83 minutes, which is a good thing in my book as "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" is definitely overlong, good (bad and ugly) as it is.

The film was shot in SW New Mexico, specifically Hillsboro, Kingston and Truth or Consequences.

GRADE: B
