Storyline

Ray Bennett, a lonely video-store owner in the middle of nowhere decides to take some days off his work to think about his future. On the road, he comes across Harley, a very attractive, mysterious woman and ex-prisoner. Having been lonely for some time, he seems charmed and willing to spend some time with her, while she needs a man to help her finish a pretty well-paying job, left in the middle when she was busted for drug money distribution. Intentions differ, plans change and "trust" is a dangerous word as they make their way into the local cartel boss's business, with $2 million and maybe a new life as a compass. Written by Aristoteles "IronBruce" Kostoulas

Reminds me a little of "Red Rock West" .........
12 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although "Backflash" does remind me a little of a superior film, "Red Rock West", with fine desert locations and plenty of guitar strums, the constant flash backs or should I say "backflashes" are both confusing and annoying. This is the type of twisty story that begs for a re-watch simply to determine if the outcome makes any sense, or is indeed playing games with the audience. The presence of actors Mike Starr and Michael J. Pollard is a nice touch, but the leads, Jennifer Esposito and Robert Patrick are difficult to embrace because of their generic characters. Special mention must be made of the soundtrack, which seems to have a strong Native American influence, and is quite good. - MERK
