Perhaps Silly?
3 June 2003 | by Cipher-JSee all my reviews

This film has no point, unless that is its point. Additionally, it is rather contrived, like a cheesy suspense film that starts out one way and ends up another. The three main characters have nothing in common, presumably, when in fact they do. There is an older male, a younger male, and a younger female, each trying to find something by running away, and that brings them together in an explosive odyssey. The title seems intentionally misleading, unless as a synonym for an onslaught. By all standards, the younger male is mentally afflicted with autism and with Tourettes syndrom. Anyway, he has escaped from a psychiatric facility. The older male exhibits symptoms of schizophrenia and psychopathy, but we don't get the details until later. In contrast, the young female seems normal enough for a girl who is alleged to be running away from home. They all appear to come from different places. That's what we are led to believe.

The story gets stranger and more bizarre as it goes - more than one is not quite right in the head. Sometimes the camera is just shooting pictures of telephone poles and wires, or other spurious details of passing along on a trip to nowhere in particular. The older man has a fancy new car but no money. As his judgement begins to deteriorate more profoundly, his younger two companions seem to grasp for some control of their destiny. Then the whole story, well, you will have to see it. There are elements of "One Flew over the Cuckoo's Nest" and "Waiting for Godot." The line between sanity and insanity is very blurred, and there is a purposelessness to the story. The ending fails to tie us back meaningfully to the beginning. It pretends to give us hope, but more like a wish, a dream, or something hallucinated by a dissociated, childlike mind. This is a film more difficult to ignore than to praise.
