This highly original independent film, directed by cult favorites Kathryn Bigelow (BLUE STEEL, POINT BREAK) and Monty Montgomery, pays homage to 50s biker movies. An eccentric cross of THE WILD ONE with SCORPIO RISING--with a mise en scene
heavily influenced by the paintings of Edward
Hopper--THE LOVELESS features a standout rock score by Robert Gordon. The simple plot has bikers stopping in a small town on their way to a big race in Daytona, Florida; not much happens, but the the filmmakers' knowing, stylized eroticization of biker culture is extraordinary. Willem Dafoe's
first starring role.
