Added DiffLines:

** The use of Riz Ortolani "Oh My Love" during the beach scene, and the artful but brutal nature of the violence is highly evocative of Italian {{giallo}} films of the same period.
** The presence of Laurene Landon (of ''ManiacCop'' fame), the synthesizer score, [[{{squick}} squicky violence]], and the gritty, neon-lit cinematography recall the 1980's exploitation films of directors like William Lustig.

* TearJerker: Irene and the Driver are alienated from each other seconds after their first kiss when he kills a thug in front of her. She returns to knock on his door some time later with a look of reconciliation, [[spoiler: but he's gone. They're never going to meet again]].

* CreepyAwesome: The driver never blinks, has only a few lines of dialogue, and ''barely'' expresses any emotion. The only thing keeping him from being TheSociopath outright is his obvious affection for [[MoralityPet Irene.]] In spite of being walking NightmareFuel, however, he's still a {{badass}}.
