Dragging the lovers to jus-
tice: Detective Crean
with — in separate sessions — an adult
female and an underage boy.
Strange events follow in their wake
as Nikki and A1 hit the road, pursued
by Doyle and the. police (Chris
Haywood and Andrew S. Gilbert).
Wherever they stop, including the trail-
er of Barry Otto and his wife, people
die. We don't see how it happens, but
we learn, as A1 does, that Nikki walks
in her sleep.
Nikki tells us at the outset, "I don't
hate men. I just don't trust them is all."
She was traumatized as a child when a
man knocked at the door, threw gaso-
line on her mother and set her on fire in
front of the girl. We don't find out as
much about Al's background, only that
his father won't hire a lawyer for him
when he's charged with murder.
“I don’t hate
men. I just don’t trust them
Whatever. The crimes we see Nikki and
A1 commit are enough to lose them our
sympathy, when the only mitigating
factor is that they're reasonably attrac-
tive twentysomethings (and they were
good iir Love and Other Catastrophes).
Director Bill Bennett made some
excellent docudramas in Australia that
had little or no US exposure; then he
came over here to make the dreadful
Two If By Sea. Returning home he's
come up with something marginally
better in Kiss or Kill, but his most notice-
able directorial touch is an annoyingly
jerky editing style that's supposed to
make the action seem accelerated. It
only made me wish Bennett or his edi-
tor would be the next murder victim.
If you don't care about the protago-
nists — and I'm not saying no one will
— and the filmmakers only annoy you,
you're watching the wrong movie. ▼
