Badlands is a sereal,almost hipnotitic,dreamlike look into a part of american culture.... lovers living in a dream, living by their own rules...which are not many. A road movie told in the context of lovers on the run from murder ...for love ...longing to be free , but knowing the dream will end.
Badlands is in a class of it,s own, thanks to the vision of Terance Malick and the beautiful preformances by Martin Sheen and Sissy spacek.
Many attemps have been made to capture the dreamlike story , but Badlands will always be in a class of it,s own.
