Storyline

Set in the rainy environs of Oregon and Washington, Punk Love is the story of two forlorn lovers, searching for that elusive Hollywood Ending to the story of their dreams. Sarah is a lost 15-year-old, trapped in an unloving home, in a dreary small paper mill town. When she meets Spike, she envisions a new life for herself. Falling in love, Sarah and Spike go on a crime spree of small-time con jobs, both to support themselves and their drug habit. Spike has dreams of his own, and when he successfully auditions for a band, he can't help but feel that he and Sarah are starting on the road to escaping their ill-fated existence. But just as things are looking up, everything goes uncontrollably wrong, and Spike and Sarah have only their undying love for each other as a means of survival against all odds. Director/writer Nick Lyon's Punk Love is a modern-day fairy tale about two fallen angels searching for meaning in a world without pity. As Spike, Chad Lindberg gives an outstanding ... Written by D.

Somewhere between crap and genius...
28 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I wouldn't say that this film is "Troma" bad, but it wasn't brilliant either. It was a dark, moody film that offers a bleak look at life for two punk teens in the Pacific Northwest of the US. The script combines elements of Midnight Cowboy, Sid and Nancy, Badlands and Requium for a Dream into the mix. I might even throw in Dumb and Dumber in there as well, since Spike and Sarah constantly do things that make you want to scream, "Don't do that" or "Don't go in there" often. The plot is a bit disjointed at times, which makes it a tough movie to sit through, and its grim theme makes it even harder. The music is (surpisingly) mostly non-punk, which added a slowness to the film that just didn't work for me. Emma Bing is solid in her role as Sarah; hopefully someone notice her and give her another shot. With that being said, this film is interesting , but not enough to be a "must see".
