Obvious Homage to David Lynch and Twin Peaks
27 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Plot.

Laine, a young woman on the run from the law, turns up at the Frontier, an isolated desert diner and motel.

She is offered a job by Luanne, the owner, and, hoping to lose herself in the obscurity of the place, accepts the job. But soon Laine realizes she has stumbled into an even bigger and more dangerous situation.

Firstly, i like the Twin Peaks look of the film. But it's very slow and the female lead is not a particularly good actress. She brings the movie down.

The dialog is second rate. It's hard to emulate Lynch because he's genuinely quirky and knows how to make it work. In fact, the more I watched this film, the more I felt it was just a Lynch rip off thank anything else.
