4.0 out of 5 stars Crazy Love on the Lam, May 3, 2013
This review is from: Prairie Love (DVD)
This movie reminds me a lot of "Fargo" and its many moments of jolting surprise and impromptu change. While its story or plot may initially appear to be blase - a cowboy drifter aimlessly travelling across a wide-open, snowbound prairie in a beat-up old station wagon - something suddenly happens to change all that. He picks up a hitchhiker whose car has broken down in the middle of a blizzard and, all of a sudden, that which was once a ho hum existence, now becomes a fascinating tale of love, lust and murder. As the hitchhiker shares his story about going to visit a female penpal at a local penitentiary, the drifter suddenly comes alive. As a survivor who has always lived his life on the margins of society, the wonders of sex have never been part of his lonely lifestyle. Now as he listens to the fantastic plans of his new travelling companion, his mind becomes transformed. He, too, wants to be able to have a woman in his life, and the only way he can do it is to hijack the other man's dream. This will involve acquiring critical detail about the woman waiting to be released from prison, finding a way to kill the would-be lover and, then, with his stolen identity turn up to claim his prize and enjoy the moment. Everything seems to work in his favour because he has no real identity but an assumed one. Later on, as events coalesce, the new woman of his dreams will learn the awful truth behind her new Lothario, but the power of love being what it is will stand by her man in the end as they are left to crawl through snowdrifts in an attempt to avoid the law that is closing in on them. As a backdrop to their futile efforts to escape, a church spire can be seen off in the distance, offering them the vain hope of a safe haven.
