Described by one critic as "a post-Bruce Weber Rebel Without a Cause, Writer/director Everett Lewis' Natural History of Parking Lots can also be labelled--as a coming-of-age film. Charlie Bean plays the alienated teenage son of an affluent black Beverly Hills family. Upon learning that Charlie gets his kicks by hot-wiring expensive cars, his father orders the boy's older brother B. Wyatt to keep an eye on him. Unfortunately, and unbeknownst to dad, Wyatt is heavily involved in a gun-running operation. Rated R for sex, violence and profanity, Natural History of Parking Lots wound up on several reviewers' "ten best" lists, thought it has yet to receive a widespread national distribution.
