Motorama

( 4 )

Overview

This black comedy offers a rather twisted version of the classic road movie, as it tells the story of a ten-year-old boy who is determined to win the "Motorama" road game, a promotional effort by a major gas station that promises winners 500 million dollars. In order to win, one simply has to collect enough game cards from Chimera gas stations all over the country to spell out the word "Motorama."

Overview

This black comedy offers a rather twisted version of the classic road movie, as it tells the story of a ten-year-old boy who is determined to win the "Motorama" road game, a promotional effort by a major gas station that promises winners 500 million dollars. In order to win, one simply has to collect enough game cards from Chimera gas stations all over the country to spell out the word "Motorama." Since his parents are not interested in the contest, the lad feels he has no other choice than to steal a bright red classic Mustang and set off across several fictional states to do it by himself. Along the way, he has assorted adventures, and many of them are not at all pleasant, but most of them are very strange. The film features cameos from several notable cult favorites, including Jack Nance, Drew Barrymore, Dick Miller, and even the pop singer Meat Loaf.

    Great road scenes from Utah, Arizona, and California

    Wierd but great. You certainly have to appreciate the scenic American West backdrop to fully indulge yourself in the rather fantastic plot. Then just sit back, not unlike a ride with Willy Wonka, and just enjoy the ride. It has a beautiful ending.

    Dark, Twisted Road Movie.....Very Underrated

    Well it's pretty obvious that the individual who wrote the previous review wasn't very educated. This is probably why he didn't like this very unique movie. You see it's a film that requires thought and an open mind. Some of the twists in the movie are pretty hard to understand unless you pay attention. Also, some of the plot is hard to swallow. This isn't because it doesn't make any sense, but because it takes place in a surreal world, with strange characters inhabiting it. It's basically a movie that isn't for small-minded people who only like movies that have more action than substance. It's a shame that most of the public falls into this category, because this is a really wonderful movie that is sadly overlooked and underrated.
