(Why didn't this "come up" here under its title?? I had to find it through Stephen Dorff's filmography. And two of its genres are listed as "mystery" and "thriller?" Jeez, IMDb!)
I forgive the title, accepting that it was meant to imply itinerant, unsettled, but I would have liked to see more of the real deal, as well. (Wild at Heart is one of my all-time favorites; "*Rockin'* good news!") We moved cross-country by car a couple of times, and although I was a kid, I was always interested in our fellow nomadic guests at (cheap) motels - much to my mother's chagrin, as she often found me chatting with some pretty sketchy characters. (She was always unfailingly polite to them while leading me away, though.)
A few years back I stayed in a motel for a week or so. Having my (large) dog with me ruled out the nicer ones, so it was pretty dicey, and 50 feet from a real dive of a bar. Good thing I'm a night owl. Late one night a woman - obviously a prostitute, as it wasn't Halloween ; ) - came to the door. She looked surprised to see a female. Her eyes widened when she saw my Doberman standing alertly by my side - whether from fear, or anticipation of a kinky scene being suggested, I wasn't sure! - and she hesitantly asked if there was a Tim there. I assured her that my dog was friendly with anyone non-threatening, and he licked her hand as though to prove it, leading to a chat re misconceptions about the breed as she knelt down to pet him. (He leaned against her, which is Doberman for "I really like this nice lady!") When I finally told her she had the wrong room, she apologized and turned to leave, then turned around and asked, "Um, if you're not going to be busy in an hour or so, could I take you out for a drink, and then maybe . . . " I laughed and told her Sorry, but I play for the other team. She laughed, too, and said "I like you!" and waved goodbye. I was flattered.
I suspect that many/most people in that situation would have called her ugly names and slammed the door in her face. Their loss; I agreed with my dog's instincts - she was a very nice woman! I would have taken her up on her offer of a drink, but it was pretty clear she expected it to lead to something else, so I felt it would have been unfair of me to do so. I was disappointed by this, as I would have loved to talk to her some more.
