Yet another painfully underseen movie that is as fun as it is bizarrely creative. Written by the man who did Vampire's Kiss and After Hours, Motorama is anything but boring. Imagine somebody took elements of Mad Max, Pee Wee's Big Adventure and Ferris Bueller, then threw it into a blender, then kidnapped Terry Gilliam and the Coen Bros. off the set of Raising Arizona and chucked them in for good measure.
