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

To be honest, I find it really difficult to judge this movie. Indeed, there is a little of nostalgia involved in this case, I must have been 12 or 13 years old when I watched the damned thing and since it was about some teenagers, I really connected with the characters.

Of course, the plot is a little bit ridiculous and I’m pretty sure that for any grown-up, it is pretty much impossible to really enjoy it but the fact remains that it actually embodies many feelings and fears that all teenagers must experience around that age. The point is that the whole pirate radio thing was rather preposterous and to conclude with a big chase involving the police and the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) was rather underwhelming. And, yet, if you keep in mind that the whole thing is basically som” read more

The Soundtrack is amazing and diverse (from Leonard Cohen to the Beastie Boys) and the lead actors, Samantha Matthis and Christian Slater, deliver a spot on performance, especially Christian Slater.

Sadly there aren't many teen dramas, but this one is somewhere on the top spots.
