This week, in honor of trick baby Trace's birthday, we're delving into Matthew Bright's Freeway (1996), a "white trash" exploitation/rape revenge/little red riding hood genre mash-up starring a very foul mouthed Reese Witherspoon and predatory perv Kiefer Sutherland. Content warning: pedophilia, sexual assault, suicide and racism.

We discuss the stacked cast, the line between satire, parody and offensive humor, and the film's surprisingly smart class critique. Plus: Trace's favorite lines, Joe's difficulty divorcing the film from recent events and Brooke Shields' earrings! This is basically "genre whiplash, the movie" - it's A LOT and it's amazing.
