Something Wild

Just like the army, there’ll always be a counter-culture. And even in Gekko-era Wall Street (quite possibly the squarest setting imaginable), there’s always a chance for a change in style

Something Wild arrives on Criterion tomorrow, quite possibly the perfect parable of counter-cultural temptation. The prospect of buying a car from John Waters, hitting the road in a thrift-store suit and seeing the Feelies play a high school reunion still sounds pretty good—even if you like your suit the way it is.
