director Matthew Bright
Matthew Bright’s black comedy Freeway is still sharp and funny over 20 years later. Reese Witherspoon was never better than in her break-out role as Vanessa Lutz, the Little Red Riding Hood from the ‘hood.
I saw this back in its original release and not since. But I’d been wanting to watch Bright’s sequel, Freeway II: Confessions of the Trickbaby, so I thought it would be worth the re-watch first.
How many people recognize Vanessa’s photo of the father she never met as Richard Speck?
It’s still very funny and dark.
