Chris (Christopher Lee Gibson) was just about to drift through another
one-horse town when two things attract his attention, one's Layla (Amanda
Powell), the lovely waitress of the local diner who's more than a bit
interested in him, the other's the local sheriff, who turns out to be
Steven (Bruce Jarman), a guy he has bullied as a child. Now Steven is
ready to bury the hatchet and become friends even if he doesn't trust
Steven further than he can throw him, but since Steven seems to be
interested in Layla as well, this is becoming a game of alpha dog for
Chris ... and he seems to win it, too.
But not everything's alright with
Chris, with the untimely death of his mother his life has fallen apart,
and since then he has drifted from town to town pretending to be what he's
not - like a policeman even - and getting by by ways of stealing and
killing even. Eventually of course, even a smalltown cop like Steven is
bound to find out just that - but will it be too late for Layla (as well
as several others) already?
The Drifter is quite a
chilling little thriller, as it focuses almost completely on Chris and
makes the audience sympathize with him - which makes his increasingly
violent deeds all the more shocking of course. But Christopher Lee Gibson
really does a great job bringing his character to life and making him
relateable, plus script and direction give him enough room to breathe
without ever forgetting to create tension and suspense aplenty.
cool and effective genre entertainment, actually!
