    Not as good as Dumont's Humanite, but a fascinating film nonetheless. most people will be put off by it's deliberately slow pace, but those who go along will not be disappointed.

    The central question surrounding "29 Palms" for me is if the final violent act would've occured independently of the nod to "Deliverance". After all, why else would you be driving around the California desert? [***SPOILERS***] Maybe, just maybe, David was double-crossed by those men in the white truck. If you believe he was, the scene in which David boots Katerina out of the motel The central question surrounding "29 Palms" for me is if the final violent act would've occured independently of the nod to "Deliverance". After all, why else would you be driving around the California desert? [***SPOILERS***] Maybe, just maybe, David was double-crossed by those men in the white truck. If you believe he was, the scene in which David boots Katerina out of the motel room, post-b.j., gains a noir-ish edge. Maybe her paranoia about that passing car is an unconscious premonition. Unlike Catherine Breillart's "Fat Girl", filmmaker Bruno Dumont might be planting clues under our noses. Expand

    The only simile that suits all the attributes to this film is "as hell".

    The "Humanite" director's Death Valley void is the real "Lost in Translation."
  2. Alas, the plot eventually takes over, and it's exceptionally ugly and unpleasant.
  3. Ultimately a hollow and pointless exercise.
