The New York Times
Tautly acted, fairly sexy and atmospheric. Its vision of Stella and Lenni as defiant, doomed outsiders desperately racing toward an elusive paradise on a treacherous highway may be bleak, but it's also intensely and proudly romantic.

New York Post
Take "Thelma & Louise," throw in hot girl-girl sex and you have Gasoline, a flammable import from Italy directed by Monica Stambrini.
60
Ultimately, this potentially intriguing character thriller loses its direction when it turns into a mean-spirited stalk-and-bash actioner.
50
Finally too derivative and sensational for its own sake to work.
50
Variety
Playing like a moribund hybrid of "Thelma and Louise" and "The Trouble With Harry," lesbian-themed thriller Gasoline lacks sex drive.
50
Impressively stylish but curiously empty.
40
By the time we get to the big finish, it feels as if we've merely been poked repeatedly in the ribs with a really good-looking stick.
38
New York Daily News
Stambrini puts so much weight on shock value, she overlooks the matter of emotional resonance.
30
Devoid of originality, Gasoline is at least a model of modesty -- a road movie that goes nowhere slowly, and ends up where it began.
25
Earnest, but a work in progress.
