RED and BLACK: Almost rented it, but then I put it back.
DISCLAIMER: The following review was written by P. Scott Cummins of Seattle, who is in no way affilliated with PVP (At least not that we know of.) No one at PVP has seen this movie yet, and so we must refrain from comment. Any opinions expressed below are the sole responsibility of the forementioned author and do not necessarily reflect that of the Plaid Voyeurism Project.

Undiscovered Cult Classic, "Joyride" captures the malaise of the 70's so much better than many films of the era. Think of it as a perfect antidote to "Saturday Night Fever" on many levels. Watch for the Pacific Northwest cinematic quirkiness that comes through later in everything from "Twin Peaks" to "Napoleon Dynamite" and many more. There are many northwest talents that went on to other endeavors in this movie as well - surprising it has not been celebrated a bit more for that. I recommend it highly to college sociology students and Melanie Griffith groupies (get a life!). Truth be told, I've always held a candle for Anne Lockhart. We could have been very happy together, the restraining order was so uncool. Psyche! She's great.
