Freeway Reviews

Top Critic
January 26, 2006
There's not much edification in store, and [director] Bright cruises over some bumpy plot holes, but the teen's perspective does put a black comic spotlight on wider social hypocrisies.

Freeway glints here and there with dark humor amounting to a knowing wink that undercuts the cautionary tale at its heart and the seriousness of its graphic sociology.

Cynical, stylish and witty.
June 18, 2002
Rude in the way the truth is rude -- only funnier.
February 14, 2001
It's too drawn-out, too talky and, at the most crucial moment, needlessly implausible, to sustain its humor and large dose of violence.

Like it or hate it (or both), you have to admire its skill, and the over-the-top virtuosity of Reese Witherspoon and Kiefer Sutherland.

Alive with the luscious turn-ons of sex and danger, Freeway is the most impressive debut film I've seen all year.

Both grimly funny and thought-provoking.
