Storyline

Two young scam artists rob their drugged victims after the woman is picked up in bars and taken to a hotel room. The only problem is that their latest victim dies. Looking at his stuff, they suddenly find a video tape with a former athlete sexually involved with a young boy. The woman contacts the athlete and sets off a series of murders in which they are incriminated and a chase across Australia led by the athlete, the police, and an aborigine tracker.

This excellent road movie is on my Top 10 List For 1997
29 November 1998 | by (Farmington Hills, MI, USA) – See all my reviews

From the superbly jumpy cinematography to the tremendous performances from the leads, this is the "lovers on the run" film that you likely thought you'd seen already... until you see it.

An obviously indie film set in Australia, this is a look at two small time cons (the remarkable Frances O'Connor & Matt Day) who stumble onto the wrong mark.

OK, so you say you've still seen this before. Kiddie porn, an ex-big league Aussie soccer player, oddball characters you really haven't ever witnessed and some surprisingly (unstereotypically) good cops make this a wonderful treat.

This is what the dreadful "Thelma and Louise," the somewhat better "Thunderbolt and Lightfoot" and all those road films which followed should have been.

Rent it, buy it, or miss out,
