    Something Wild

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Watched as part of our continuing 'White Yuppies in Distress' season.

    Ranking so far:

    1. Something Wild (1986)
    2. After Hours (1985)
    3. Into The Night (1985)

    So far it is white men in distress, clearly, and also white straight men in distress too, as all the protagonists are lulled into nighttime drama by an exciting woman; I haven't thought it through, but are there equivalent films from the time about women being drawn into the night by exciting men?…
