Phallocentrism is rampant
Although the main character of the film is a woman the whole film is geared towards a man's point of view. Even from the first scene of the movie most of the shots of the woman are of her body and very close up on her chest or backside. Her motorcycle suit is referred to as being like skin and she continually thinks of the fact that she is wearing nothing underneath it. The motorcycle is large and powerful and sets the woman free and is constantly referred to as male. Even when it is the woman who is making the trip the whole thing is actually about her boyfriend, the man of the story. She is constantly thinking about him and heading towards him. She even says she feels as if she only comes to life when she is with him, as if she lacks something when she is by herself.
This film is in no way liberating for women. She is portrayed as being a sex object with no worth but what the men give her. Multiple times she almost gets into an accident on the road because she is not paying attention which implies she is stupid or air-headed. Her whole world revolves around the man she wants and the man she is stuck with and that in no way liberates her. She is formed and defined by men and that is all her life is.
