If you pay close enough attention, you even see subliminally inserted frames in the gunshot flashes as Allie takes target practice in a field in the Texas hill country.
The opening sequence, framed by cinematographer Amy Bench, wonderfully conveys the desolation of the scary and barren back streets of Brooklyn at night, and the long shots juxtapose slender and vulnerable Allie against those mean streets. The overall effect portrays her as more likely fearless than naïve as she searches for a band’s gig.
After the assault the story moves to Austin, and inexorably to its shocking conclusion, Allie takes us on a slow ride through a range of experiences such as culture shock, love interests, hidden agendas and coping with the unfamiliar emotion of fear. It is her clumsiness in coping with fear – and the lack of necessary tools to deal with it – that are what watching her bravely attempt to try do so, so riveting.
See it. See it again. You will love it!
