This is an entertaining surreal road movie.

When i say that "Motorama" is number one on my list, it is number one on my "worst movies ever" list.

Into this detritus wander an exhausted boy and an ailing woman to whom he clings as mother-figure becoming girl-friend, who fall asleep side by side on the grass.

Interestingly enough the movie itself is fascinating and even at it's conclusion, one has the notion that it must be seen again.

Utterly bizarre, somehow incomprehensible, totally unpredictable, it just keep you stoned watching at the screen trying to figure out what will happen next.

This is the worst movie I have ever seen.

With a story so nonsensical it ceases to be enjoyable, and a main character who never evolves to care for himself or anyone else on a higher level, "Motorama" has little to offer except a brat sneaking around and trying to get rich.

Quite the strange film, but I enjoyed it.

So it is a bit confusing because you are trying to work out whether they believe him or not.

This movie is easily overlooked in the video racks - especially with its misleading "Home Alone meets Thelma And Louise" packaging - but it is really worth watching.

Also the film gets confusing towards the end reaching David Lynch territory, you may want to watch it a couple times.

And the end of protagonist's quest is unclear, though it seems to indicate that it was an utter waste of time, making the 90 or so minutes following this character a waste of time.

An entertaining surreal road movie .

There is little dramatic action as conventionally understood; however frantically the characters perform, their busyness serves to underscore the fact that nothing happens to change their existence...

Thereafter we get more iterations of the same, in an ever-cruder and more squalid progression that, far from incongruous, soon proves predictable.

Worst movie ever .

Motorama is a confusing whirlwind of madness, involving symbolism, and pure chaos.
