Kathryn Bigelow made a name for her self as one to watch with this moody loose remake of The Wild One. A gang of bikers rides into a slow back water town for a pit stop to be received by a suspicious town folk. Stylish and very cool Dafoe as the leader of the bikers is charismatic and very watchable. Recommended.

The Wild One revisitedReviewed byfilm-review-monthlyVote: 7/10
"The Loveless" was Kathryn Bigelow's feature film debut, (she co-wrote and co-directed it with Monty Montgomery). It's a very self-conscious homage to both "The Wild One", with Willem Dafoe in the Brando role, (it also marked Dafoe's 'official' debut), and Kenneth Anger's "Scorpio Rising" shot in the garish colors of the kind of fifties' melodramas that Douglas Sirk might have made. It's got a very rough and ready feel to it and the script and the acting leave a lot to be desired but it looks great, (Bigelow was a painter before going into movies), and it has a great soundtrack. Hardly anything happens and it might have worked better as a short but at 82 minutes it never outstays its welcome and is worth catching.
Bigelow debut film in a bikexploitation key. The director proves she knows her predecessors: The Wild One (Il Selvaggio, Benedek, 1953) of course, but also The Wild Angels (I Selvaggi, Corman, 1966) and probably the project by Romero Knightriders released the same year, just to mention those "copyright." Easy Rider, 1969 by Hopper, less influential than the hippy iconography of the 1960s rather than the bikers of the 1950s. The film made a very young Willem Dafoe known at the beginning of his career. Last notation: Bigelow deals with the topic in a testosteronic key, a feature that we will find in her subsequent films especially those of a military-military setting, among all The Hurt Locker, 2008 with which she won the Oscar in 2010!
