Guido charges toward the girls as they run toward Joel's house. In the next frame Guido is standing back where he was before he started running.
Guido charges, then stops. He never runs. He is standing where he started because he knew that chasing them would be futile, hence his reaction (throwing down the clothing) to his frustration over their behavior. See more »
The dream is always the same. Instead of going home, I go to the neighbors'. I ring, but nobody answers. The door is open, so I go inside.

Underrated (I): Cruise (Joel Goodson) is highly amusing as one of his most feared "career moves" might become harsh reality: University of Illinois - here he is! Excellent movie providing an accurate, contemporary image of the eighties. Well to do family all shook up by low class intruders of various kinds. Underrated (II): the importance of the exhilarating music for this movie, providing a perfect match - between dreamy Techno (Tangerine Dream) and "that old time rock 'n roll" (Seger, The Police, Phil Collins, Muddy Waters, Bruce Springsteen). The relationship with De Mornay is amazingly vibrant - the dialogue sharp and cheerful. Everlasting oneliners everywhere. The impression this movie made here in Europe (is that what American highschool life is really about?) can hardly be overrated.
