The scene in Stevo's parents' living room where they try to convince him to go to Harvard was shot in director James Merendino's father's house.See more »
Anachronisms: Stevo's father claimed to have gone to Woodstock. Stevo would have been born in approx. 1963 to have graduated high school in 1981. So his father would have had a six year old son while being a student at Harvard University.See more »

In my face, 6 September 2004
Author: bobsmithbobsmith from Seattle

It was a joy to watch this film and see myself and my wife. There we were watching the movie on one of our countless movie channels on our huge cable account while we ate popcorn in bed and she knitted. We were both hard core alternative kids in our youth and somehow ended up living in a high rent condo in Seattle with corporate jobs. The movie pretty much tells the story of every true intelligent punk. Why do you ask? Well, because those of us that were so hard core, were also into CHANGE. And the only way to change the world, is to live IN it. Be a part of it. We laughed at the end when we realized we were both just like the lead character. Anarchy is great for your youth. But anarchy for life is not going to lead you anywhere if you still want to LIVE. Rather, you need to get INSIDE the world to turn it inside out.

Bravo. Wonderful little film. High marks.
