I am not entirely sure how I came across ‘Badlands‘. I think I was watching ‘Life, Itself’ and Roger Ebert read his review of the movie. I don’t know what about it I found alluring, but I decided to watch the movie. I am glad I did.
I have no idea if I would have ever seen this movie if it weren’t for the haphazard life that I sometime throw myself into.
The movie chronicles the adventure of young impressionable girl and her sociopath boyfriend. The movie has hints of Bonnie and Clyde, which is directly referred to in the movie. The music is, like the movie, timeless. It really helps the film feel like it could be happening at anytime, anywhere.
