CGiii Comment

Seemingly loaded with symbolism and subtext when all it really is, is just another version of the equally laborious Two Lane Blacktop.

With Vietnam and free-love wafting in the background - VP is just a road-cum-car flick with all the obligatory ingredients:

1. The car
2. The road
3. The desert
4. The music
5. Gay hitchhikers (and they just happen to be psychotic)

And that's all there is to it.

Really, if this is your thing, then you will enjoy it. Otherwise go to Disneyland.
