one of the best of the best- i think of the whole film, from performances to story as an absolute miracle- to capture this kind of vitality is one out of a million(s).. guess Linda Manz was just too real for Hollywood and the rest, but her work for me is to be treasured. this film reminds you just how little narrative art has evolved since, better, how it has dissolved. There is not a frame in there that is not driven by purpose, and at the same time particular- it matches the best of what punk rock was/is, and perhaps its response since, shows it to be just a bit more pure (no "filthy lucre" tours for this one). now available in the $1.99 cheap bin, right next to Altered States..get it now!
