Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Its sincere sympathy for the runaway kids is what elevates this standard rebellious teen flick above many others in this genre.

This drama (aka The Wild Side), the first of Spheeris' two youth movies of the 1980s, concerns angry boys whose rebelliousness in reflected in cutting their hair instead of growing it long; the mood is right, the text is not.

"I was a good filmmaker ... before I sold out," says Penelope Spheeris on her audio commentary, and it's tough not to appreciate the gal's candor.

Gritty Los Angeles punk-rock chronicle is ugly, raw and realistic.
