In the Kentucky suburbs of Cincinnati, social misfit Jimmy Wright always has his video camera - at his psychiatrist's, spying on his parents in their bedroom, and watching high-school senior, Judy Oaks-Kellen. He rescues Judy from a teacher and students who tease and torment her, and showing her his video tape of revenge kick-starts their friendship, which is soon in an overdrive of romance, sex, and pleasure. Jimmy is in and out of mental institutions, and before long, he and Judy are on the run. Cocaine, guns, and a commune of other misfits figure in their flight. How far can their love take them? It's all on video. Written by

Jimmy, we discussed this, you can't tape our sessions, it's not allowed. Does your defiance make you feel more powerful? Filming people makes you feel like you're in control of the situation, doesn't it? Maybe?

Near the end of the credits is the following disclaimer: "No animals were harmed in the filming of this movie. The Raccoon was already dead. We found it that way. Seriously." See more »
This movie was a pleasant surprise and though reminding a lot "Natural Born Killers", from which borrowed many things, has a particular appeal of its own. Both kids are mentally disturbed and the whole story focuses on this disturbance and on the experiment of videotaping everything - by the way the manner sequences are shot is similar to "The Blair Witch Project". Edward Furlong's rage and Rachael Bella's sexual drive are visible and their outrageous behavior is believable, their chemistry is quite impressive (on the other hand they're husband and wife in the real life). I'd recommend the movie for their performances and for the street theater like atmosphere.
