Sandra R (gb) wrote: I've watched this film twice: the first time because it was recommended to me, and the second because i wished to revisit the carefree quest for freedom that the film promotes. I do not feel that it suggests that people go trainhopping or break any laws. I do feel however, that it does a fine job of reminding those of us that live with the self-appointed boundaries of "normal" life that seeking freedom and self-expression should be a daily activity rather than a rare and infrequent one. I found the characters to be diverse and extremely eloquent, and their musings to be insightful humorous and inspirational. So if you're looking for a film that condemns alternative lifestyles and unconventional thinking, then this is not the film for you. However, if you wish to be witness to something truly liberating, consider watching [i]Catching Out[/i]. Highly recommended.

David T (au) wrote: A film like this, you'd think existed with cinema of the 1940's. Great film. Bates and Leigh give outstanding performances.

Kevin S (kr) wrote: Teen angst in the tradition of Rebel Without a Cause but wrapped in the guise of a Bonnie & Clyde crime drama. This is the kind of noir that genre fans drool over. Farley Granger (who?) shows enormous promise in this, one of his first roles. Why oh why didn't we see more from this talented young star?
