That might become a new word for how you feel after watching this two-lovers-on-the-road-on-the-lam. Amy Seimetz has a talent for putting two unlovable and unwatchable leads on screen and make them hypnotically and oddly compelling for an hour and a half. Like a TLC reality show through an auteur’s lens, this film wades into hillbilly Everglades with wide-eyed fascination for the trysts and the tourist trap kitsch that color the landscape. There’s no B-roll of gators in them there swamps; the only monsters the desperate, human kind.
What have you seen by the end of the film? You’re not quite sure. Pushing the boundary means sometimes you’re going to fall, but for God’s sake be graceful. And Seimetz dances the line like a goddamn ballerina.
