Sometimes a sequel can be just as much fun as the original. The Trip To Italy is a case in point. The premise of The Trip was two guys on a road trip to write a book about sampling the best food in the UK. It was just Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon playing somewhat fictionalized versions of themselves and having a great deal of fun. The same is true of The Trip To Italy.
When Esther is viciously attacked, it might just turn out to be the proverbial blessing in disguise because she meets Melanie in a support group. Melanie seems to get her and the two become fast friends. Eventually, though, things get weird.

IFC Films’ +1 is a strange, delightfully odd movie that combines the college party movie with a bit of time hopping (literally). It’s genuinely unique and a lot of fun – definitely worth picking up on DVD or Blu-Ray.
The Red Riding Trilogy [Red Riding 1974, Red Riding 1980, and Red Riding 1983] is a series of movies that deal with police corruption and the kidnapping of several young girls in the Yorkshire area of England during the period of time the city was the site of a series of murders by the so-called Yorkshire Ripper. They are masterful examples of how to fold real events into a fictional narrative.
These are grim, grimy, gritty films in which one character seeks to find the truth, root out the bad guys and make things right – but two of the leads [in 1974 and 1980] fail to realize how systemic the corruption has become, while the third is one of the corrupted who is faced with events that cause his not quite dead conscience to reappear in fill bloom.
