Rare early 90s Teenager Movie

I just love this movie, even though I'm way past my teenage years.
Of course it has its flaws, but it's also one of the best movies I know that portrait teenagers in the early 90s. The setting reminds me of "My so called life", a great TV Series also set in the early 90s.
The Soundtrack is amazing and diverse (from Leonard Cohen to the Beastie Boys) and the lead actors, Samantha Matt... read more

Moviewatcher122's 2014 Film Diary: July (37 movies items)

"July 2 "I'm sick of being ashamed. I don't mind being dejected and rejected, but I'm not going to be ashamed about it. At least pain is real. I mean, you look around and you see nothing is real, but at least the pain is real." While this was an enjoyable movie, it also felt dated and it just didn't leave a big impression on me. It is well-made and I like what it had to say, but it's not as good as it would've been 24 years ago and it's really not anything memorable. "

Leffatykin arvostelut (108 movies items)

"(09.04.2009) Mark (Slater) on syrjäytynyt ja yksinäinen teinipoika, joka kerää elämänilonsa Hard Harry-salanimellä vetämäarä piraattiradio-ohjelmastaan, jossa Mark soittaa levyjään, esittää teko-orgasmeja, lukee kuulijoidensa fanipostia ja kritisoi rankkasanaisesti paikallista lukiota, missä poika itsekin menestyksekkäästi opiskelee. Alueen nuorten keskuudessa suursuosiota nauttiva viaton purkautumiskanava päätyy kuitenkin eräänä iltana koko kansan yhteiseksi puheenaiheeks"

" They say I'm disturbed. Well, of course I'm disturbed. I mean, we're all disturbed. And if we're not, why not? Doesn't this blend of blindness and blandness want to make you do something crazy? Then why not do something crazy? It makes a helluva lot more sense than blowing your fucking brains out. "
