The future: Earth has become a mostly barren and earthquake-prone planet, and the little water that is found on the planet is controlled by a big conglomerate that uses it to force the population into obedience, and is looking for more and more ways to force everyone else into dependency. With that in mind, the conglomerate, led by power-hungry Riley (Gregory Littman) and ruthless Carmen (Anna Khaja), tries to hunt down all desert dwellers, those who live in the wastelands to fend on their own while stealing "their" water. Blake (Jack Littman) and his wife (Autumn Randolph) are two such desert dwellers, and their near perfect hide-out gives them an edge - until it's found out and a drone attack forces them on the road. Travelling through the desert, they're attacked by Hook (Ksusha Genenfeld), a 14 year old girl forced to fend for herself and thus resorting to piracy. She's quickly defeated, but ultimately, Jake and his wife decide to take her with them on their journey, as three have a better chance for survival than two. Then one night though they're attacked by mercenaries from the conglomerate and Blake's wife is kidnapped. Blake knows he has to get her back, but he's so desparate about it, he probably would have died more than once on his way to the conglomerate's headquarters if it wasn't for Hook. Meanwhile, at the headquarters, Riley decides to totally reprogram Blake's wife into total obedience to him, making her his new consort - much to the dismay of Carmen, who fears with a new, obedient woman around her own influence would be diminished ...


Now sure, much of the story of Rumble Strip might be reminiscent of any number of dystopian and post apocalyptic sci-fi movies, but that's not really seeing the point here, as much more than your usual action fodder and/or social commentary, Rumble Strip is a mood piece, a dark cinematic poem that really treats all its action as little more than a by-product for its atmospheric compositions that work as outward manifestations of the characters' inner turmoils, and thus the imagery often leans towards the lyrical and/or existential while playing down all spectacle. Now sure, this approach might not be to everyone's liking as the film as a result becomes deliberately slow-moving, but for those looking for something a little different within a well-defined genre, this is a rewarding experience.
