Suburbia Reviews

Nathan Rabin

Top Critic IconTop Critic

It still shows enormous empathy and sensitivity in capturing the angst and alienation of American youth, making it seem both rooted in a specific time and place and strangely timeless.

A justifiably angry film, fast and full of violent action, though there's plenty of humour too; and the lack of originality is amply compensated for by its manifest sincerity.

Penelope Spheeris's Suburbia is a clear- eyed, compassionate melodrama about a bunch of young dropouts who call themselves ''The Rejected'' or, for short, the TR's.
