Twentynine Palms

SD

David, an independent photographer, and Katia, an unemployed woman, leave Los Angeles, en route to the southern California desert, where they search a natural set to use as a backdrop for a magazine photo shoot. They find a motel in the town of Twentynine Palms and spend their days in their sport-utility vehicle, discovering the Joshua Tree Desert, and losing themselves on nameless roads and trails. Frantically making love all the time and almost everywhere, they regularly fight, then kiss and make up, with little else going on in their empty relationship and quite ordinary daily life - until something horrible and hideous brutally puts an end to their trip....

I would like to recommend to everyone the director's version, extended by more than twenty minutes, of additional scenes, which gives a fuller picture of the film and in an interesting way explains some issues completely omitted in the cinema release. If I had to choose only one movie that I would watch over and over, it would be Twentynine Palms. The fact is that the film is very good. An interesting plot, good, thrilling action with a few great scenes, good acting (especially supporting actors). There are some stages in this movie that I will remember until death. The story is really solid, the pacing is great, and all of the actors gave great performances. What a mix of emotions after watching, I really loved it. I can recommend this movie to everyone :)....
