Head-On (Akin, 2004)

Faith Akin seems more concerned with glances, stares, and screams than the actual words his characters speak, a motif brilliantly realized in the many music infused montages throughout Head-On. This film is both cliched and original depending on recurring genre traits and archetypes being addressed, throwing them all under a raging locomotive of emotional angst. It’s an intriguing mix you don’t see very often.
