Mojave movie rating: red light

Mojave red light

A spoiled melancholy Hollywood brat and a menacing drifter meet in the desert, talk about T.E. Lawrence and Jesus, and stalk each other back to Los Angeles. An unwitting cautionary tale about toxic masculinity quickly descends into a deadly dick-measuring contest — featuring exchanges of faux-deep philosophies about life, fame, sociopathy, and death — that you will hope neither survives.
I’m “biast” (pro): love Oscar Isaac and Garrett Hedlund

I’m “biast” (con): nothing
