Storyline

A woman tries to kill herself and ends up in the hospital. She escapes and wanders into the desert. There she comes upon a roadside bar where she gets extremely drunk with the locals and a mysterious man, who seems to be shy of policemen. She wakes up in bed with the stranger, not remembering much from the night before, in a nearby abandoned house and finds out that she got married to him at the bar. They try and find an answer to their lives and love in this isolated nowhere. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

Erotic Lynch-esquire Film
14 October 2006 | by groanboxcomaSee all my reviews

This dreamy movie, I feel is so uncredited and unnoticed or not given enough credit. It may not be appreciated by many people because there are so many existing films similar to it (e.g. Wild at Heart). But, don't let that get in your way. I found this very similar to such films as 'Blue Velvet', 'Wild at Heart', 'Mulholland Drive', 'Lost Highway' and it strangely is reminiscent of 'Requiem for a Dream'. It's essentially an intense, beautiful, erotic love story. The moods' it creates are very carnal, passionate, melancholy, desperate and dream-like/surreal. I can definitely see the similarities to 'Monster's Ball'. All in all, it's a good but very overlooked film. For fans of depressing love stories and Lynch films, this will be very appealing.
