What are people saying?

  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film Back Roads

    **1/2. Another movie about poverty by Martin Ritt. But it's impossible to starve in the US according to an unwritten Hollywood law so Sally and Tommy Lee can still use their body in order to head to California and eat hamburgers and tacos along the way. They're very polite and say thanks to anyone opening the door for them. It's totally unreal, it's a comedy, it's industrial cinema. Sorry Martin. Already forgotten.
