In many ways, it reminded me of "Dazed & Confused," or "Go," but it was done so much better, both in characters, character development, and the best ending of all three films.
The movie is about a Rave, pure and simple, in modern day San Francisco. The characters are real, the acting is really surprisingly good, and the cultural statements are just beautiful. I do believe this marks the first film appearance of Red Bull energy drink.
The movie itself is like a rave. Loud, by in a flash, and you find yourself wishing you could just say good-night to all the characters one more time before the evening is over. But then it is, and you're left with just a really good vibe.
This movie was just a really good vibe. See it with a bunch of friends, and get your groove on.
