Aro Recommended Snakeskin


New Zealand 2001, 94 minutes
Dir. Gillian Ashurst
Rating: [R16]
Genres: Suspense/Crime / Girl-centric, Road Movie


Aroview: Searching for a little excitement in those hills due west of Christchurch, NZ, Melanie Lynsky and Dean O’Gorman are sucked into a series of private feuds involving skinheads, drug-dealers, Japanese tourists and a sociopathic Yankee hitchhiker.

While wildly parodying itself most of the time, this acid-fueled road-movie boasts an enjoyable surplus of sick humour and sexual hi-jinks, confessing a worship of American trash culture with its great soundtrack and parade of in-jokes.
