A Pleasant Surprise
24 April 2019 | by TobaccoSmokeSee all my reviews

Before I streamed this movie on TUBI TV, I was expecting the usual spoiled brats and misandry, but "Deserted" caught me by surprise. The men and women in this film are a lot more realistic than most films in this category of cinema and the ex con who is looked down on is female. She is actually likable and the when she reveals why she committed murder, I was expecting a lecture on drug abuse or the like. But instead, her revelation opened my ears and I felt more sympathy towards her. This is a good struggle-to-survive movie and after all the horsing around these characters do, you actually begin to feel sympathy for them when they face harsh challenges in Death Valley. Kudos to the female director for not going down the usual path of male-bashing and choosing to respect both sexes, opening the viewer to their struggles over their differences. I hope we see more films like these popping up as we enter the 2020's. We need them.
