MOTORAMA

Posted on

It’s bizarre as all get-out and at times makes David Lynch look square. In Motorama (1992, Columbia TriStar, R, $89.95), a 10-year-old (Jordan Christopher Michael) steals a Mustang and guns it through a fantasy landscape where he meets a cast of extremely colorful characters (the likes of Drew Barrymore, Meat Loaf, and Michael J. Pollard). The script by Joseph Minion (After Hours), a collision of ironies and absurdities, turns the journey into a nightmare ride as the kid compulsively plays a Lotto-like game from cards picked up at gas stations. Often brutally funny, this one’s bound to become a cult item-and where else are you going to see a pig wearing an S&M doggie collar? B+
