Film Review - The Bikeriders


Jeff Nichols hasn’t made a feature since 2016’s “Loving,” and he returns to screens with an unusual study of family in “The Bikeriders,” which continues his career mission to explore various kinds of relationships and cultures. It’s an adaptation of a photo book by Danny Lyon, who collected pictures and interviews from those involved with a motorcycle club, seeking to understand what life was like inside such a volatile organization. Nichols (who also scripts) follows this lead, creating a film of moments, memories, and connections, eschewing plot to explore camaraderie and forms of respect. “The Bikeriders” is loaded with atmosphere and stacked with a cast of brooding male talent, and the helmer works hard to keep viewers in this haze of brotherhood as it evolves from something almost pure to a more organized display of criminal activity.
