Something Wild
A rape victim goes through inner turmoil in the days following her suffering the brutal assault. Mary Ann (Carroll Baker) leaves her middle class New York home to wander the mean streets of Manhattan. She is isolated and lonely in spite of being surrounded by people. A kindly garage mechanic befriends the troubled woman on the brink of self destruction - but soon Mary Ann must ask herself if she can really trust him. Musical score provided by American legend Aaron Copeland. ~ Dan Pavlides, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The movie's uneasy blend of symbolism and naturalism might have worked better onstage."
‑ J. Hoberman, Village Voice
"The sordid psychodrama comes to a jaw-dropper of a conclusion that's oddly touching despite its outrageous proposal that marriage is the cure for post-traumatic shock syndrome."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"An urban fairy tale oddity."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"An obscure blast from the past, Something Wild is a narrative precursor to Roman Polanski's Repulsion."
‑ Ed Gonzalez, Slant Magazine
