Desolation Angels ★★ 1995

Nick Adams (Rodrick) returns to New York after a month spent unhappily visiting his mother and discovers his girlfriend Mary (Thomas) has been raped by his best friend Sid (Bassett). At least that's how Nick interprets the situation after an unwilling Mary admits they had sex. Nick goes after Sid, gets beaten up, hires a couple of thugs who botch a retaliation, and just gets increasingly enraged over his inability to settle the situation. The focus is on Nick and Rodrick is more than up to the director McCann's demands. 90m/C VHS, DVD . Michael Rodrick, Peter Bassett, Jennifer Thomas; D: Tim McCann; W: Tim McCann; C: Matt Howe.
