A curious film, one half great and one half bizarre
5 September 2000 | by (Kew Gardens, NY) – See all my reviews

This film is beautifully shot, with a great soundtrack of different kinds of music to it. A naturalistic film that reminded me of Nicholas Roeg's "Walkabout", in that two characters live a natural life, only in this case its in an abandoned roadside motel in the heartland, not the Australian outback. When the film comes to its second hour, the second half of the film, I wasn't sure if the plot was worthy of the entrancing first half of the film, when the two lost souls, the lead man and lead woman, find each other and "set up camp." When a secret is finally revealed, it's sort of worth it. But the dynamics of the two newer characters with the two original ones is truly interesting. I'm being vague here, as I discovered this on a videotape from a film festival reject pile, and feel like others should discover it the way I did, not knowing a thing about the gradual story. I disagree with the programmers of this not-to-be-named festival. I think this would have been a good film to show. It won't please everyone, but people who love a visually arresting film with an unfolding secret will stay with it. All in all, very well done.
