eric gould's rating of the film Yellowknife

Yellowknife filters Lynch's dark margins of desire (Lost Highway, Wild at Heart) with Monte Hellman and Chris Petit in a brew lingering with age. Less about the landscape of the North, it's a Canadian search for home in it against impenetrable shadows. On the road sex burns near this scrim for the twin male strippers and siblings looking for a new life. Can it contain the heat? Diva Patsy Gallant stars in rare film.
