Classic Campion - bizarre, tragic, and amusing
19 March 1999 | by See all my reviews

A close, concentrated look at a dysfunctional - or regular - family in a car. It's amazing how fully the characters are fleshed out in nine minutes, without giving any information except what we witness first hand.
