Critic Reviews for Vida Sin Rumbo

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (2)

At times the perversely slow beat of each scene can irritate, but that's a reasonable price for the film's super-saturated atmosphere.

June 24, 2006 | Full Review…

Its evocation of tough-guy glamour is ridiculously stilted. And it regards the past with absolutely no perspective or wit.

May 14, 2005 | Rating: 1.5/5

Filmmakers Bigelow and Montgomery, working from their own screenplay, deliver a meandering, uneventful drama that grows less and less interesting as it progresses...

February 27, 2021 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

An acceptable turn by Willem Dafoe and nice photography by Doyle Smith are the only assets to this inert drama.

July 20, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

An excoriation of Reagan-era nostalgia for the Fifties

September 25, 2009 | Full Review…

A strange, but compelling amalgam of art film and homage to the American International Pictures biker flicks of the 1960s.

Audience Reviews for Vida Sin Rumbo

Did this movie have a story? You can't even tell, since nothing happens at all. I did not care for this movie, and I don't recommend it.

Kathryn Bigelow's feature debut is an assured, vibrant and detailed biker flick set in evocative 50's small town America. There's not much in the way of plot and the script is basic (but natural) and much of the pleasure of the film is in the way it looks more than what is being said. Interesting that the bikers themselves are rather a peaceful bunch, more interested in shooting the breeze, drinking cola and listening to rock n roll on the jukebox than causing any real trouble - it's the locals, their prejudices, and the sins of a father that lead to the brief but memorable violence. A fascinating flim.

It was worth it to see Willem Dafoe as a fifties biker in the same light as The Wild One, but the script was just not strong enough. It had a lot of bizarre stereotypes for the time that just didn't fit and almost nothing happened until the very end. I liked a lot of the cinematography and it really could have been a great movie if it would've had a more interesting plot and supporting characters.
