Rollercoaster | Chicago Reader


Five Vancouver teens raise hell in an amusement park that's been shut down, enjoying the rides, swilling down whiskey, and sucking joints, but their solitude begins to seem more a symbol of abandonment by the adult world than some teenage fantasy. Chloe is pregnant by the leader, Darrin; Stick, a macho lout, is secretly gay; and the only adult in the film, a security guard for the park, is worse than anything these punks could imagine. Filmmaker Scott Smith knows how to use silence to speak pain, and no doubt he considers the film's utter bleakness a perverse proof of its honesty, yet he has to stack a lot of cards against these apprentice losers. Brendan Fletcher is terrific as Stick, the kid with the most to hide. 90 min.
