Slate, Wyn & Me


Time Out says

Recipe for Road Movie Rehash, Australian-style. Take basic stock of bungled bank robbery, panic shooting of cop, and flight of two Chevy-driving teenage delinquents with young female hostage. Throw in leftovers from Bonnie and Clyde, Badlands, Thieves Like Us or The Grissom Gang. Add slices of indigenous wild life and a pinch of James Dean posturing, then spice with three-way sexual power games. A smidgen of rock'n'roll and the vaguest hint of early '60s iconography will impart the requisite period flavour. Half-bake under a hot sun for approximately 90 minutes, checking from time to time for signs of originality. Garnish generously with widescreen sunsets and shots of attractive young men and women in figure-hugging jeans. This is a useful recipe for making something out of nothing; it is reasonably filling, and if presented properly can make an impression on the eye. Consume immediately, as the contents tend to evaporate rapidly.
