Mark Adams Screen International Burnout veers from loneliness and misery to hope and redemption, and while tinged with a streak of sentimentality it feels a very modern film reflecting a society at odds with itself. Dec 13, 2017 Full Review Read all reviews

Bunk M Tony's POV speed biking is worth the watch, in a meddling plot, but you'll hang on for the finish. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/15/23 Full Review Riku G this movie is a masterpiece , I love how it captures the stories of different main characters that all are tied together and we sit and watch how each goes on their journey. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/06/22 Full Review andrew h It was hard to understand. It's like they were speaking a different language. Just kidding. In all seriousness, it wasn't a bad flick. Not too exciting but not boring. The white gypsies were shown as prejudice to Arabs and blacks but they did not show the prejudices of the others. This is a gross misrepresentation of reality. All involved were basically drug pushers and traffickers, ultimately willing to abuse and murder to gain position. By the end, we see in Tony (main "protaganist") what many of us do in age, a yearning for the thrill of fast living. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Pretty good movie, worth watching. Had some overtones of the movie Drive. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
