Our take

A road movie with a twist, the final film in Hal Hartley’s Long Island Trilogy finds strangeness and chic ennui beneath icons of Americana. Brace yourself for one of the coolest dance sequences in cinema, a Bande à part homage set to the adrenaline-pumping guitar riffs of Sonic Youth’s Kool Thing!
