Indie-style subterranean tension with a lighthearted face. *spoilers*
10 September 2014 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

Road to Paloma and Joe, with Nicholas Cage, deal in essential the same moral dilemma, do modern laws do a better job at effecting justice than the suppressed truth that the weak are meat and the strong do eat (to quote the homo-erotic, black-sploitation, trekian dud that was Cloud Atlas).

But whereas Joe put the face of an irascible, end-of-his rope, sexually impotent, dead-end trailer park inhabiting, tree killing tough guy on the 11th hour self destructing deliverer of justice, Road to Paloma shows us a life-loving, even tempered, resourceful, smiling, respectful young Adonis running with the wind. Both are in for the same fate, but for Robert Wolf, it comes directly courtesy of the government. Joe is just unable to fight the "good" fight because of the local Sheriff, who in turn, is a pretty likable fellow. And in Paloma we have the same idea of the local federal officer who "get's it", but this time he has to serve the big-bad bogeyman from Washington.

Then there the small matter of whether in your image of unfettered masculinity, your preferences tend to a salt-of-the-earth GMC truck or a vintage Harley with a suicide shifter. The riding scenes in Paloma certainly channel Easy Rider. Yet this film possibly does a better job of capturing real fraternal bond between riding buddies Cash and Wolf than the overly simplistic Fonda-Hopper "tripping balls and gross fornication" stuff that played well in the 60s, but seems sort of bizarre and pointless in a smelly-hippy way in 2014. Whereas we are pretty sure Robert Wolf and Cash bedding down on the open road smell like John Wayne's leather chaps on the cattle trail, we think Fonda and Hopper probably smell like a couple of gross guys with really bad BO who bath in a lake by the side of the road once a month.

In fairness, Paloma is not likely to play well with the Sons of Anarchy fans. Not enough illicit crime and subterfuge. Not enough killing. Nor is it likely to win over the American Chopper / Biker Buildoff folks, who will no doubt scratch their heads at how you fix a radiator on a broken down Chevy with parts you've got stashed away in your saddlebags. Nonetheless, it is an enjoyable film, with perhaps one to many landscape backdrop shots, implausible plot timing, and a highly unsatisfying ending.
