An engaging, no-budget blend of Art-house and Grindhouse.
25 April 2011 | by (Antigua and Barbuda) – See all my reviews

NAKED TRIP is an edgy excursion into the territories of crime/noir and European Trash Cinema with some visual quotes from Jean-Luc Godard's 1965 science fiction classic ALPHAVILLE. George Eastman is on the run from the UK mob, fleeing through various downscale locales in an economically blighted England that tourists never get to see, bumping into sex workers, gangsters and characters out of movie history. It's not where he's going that counts, or even if he gets there, it's the journey, the ride, the trip.

The seedy characters and locations are well observed by director Alex Bakshaev. It's unpredictable, a quality which I always rate highly. Clocking in at under an hour I wanted it to continue just as it ended. That's something that almost never happens when I view most contemporary films. There are a number of names and characters in this film which evoke the transgressive oeuvre of Italian exploitation kingpin Joe D'Amato. NAKED TRIP has an atmosphere, characters and plot which reminded me of one of my favorite D'Amato titles, PLEASURE SHOP ON 7TH AVENUE, which also dealt with horny lowlifes on the run from the mafia. An engaging, no-budget blend of Art-house and Grindhouse.

Refreshing and recommended!
