Roddam's look back at an angsty young man in '65 is a throwback to the kitchen-sink dramas that began plumbing the depths of lower-class lives then. Reeking with a restless teen spirit, Quadrophenia leads us down adolescence's blind alleys of rebellion.

Manages to be both quintessentially British and irrefutably universal.

Director Franc Roddam shot the film with a gritty, realistic feel and the themes of youthful rebellion and confusion are absolutely timeless, magnified by the specificity of the setting rather than being limited by it.

An anti-musical...based on The Who's 1973 "rock opera" concept album...all the more brilliant for this seemingly counter-intuitive approach. [Blu-ray]

When you're an angry young man, there's no better way to prove you're an individual than to dress and act exactly like everybody else.

The film lives through the superb raw angst-ridden performance of Phil Daniels.

"Quadrophenia" is a glorious representational story of male teen angst that transcends its British locations and great music with a sense of the confused romantic notions that young men the world over carry with them.

Disappointing film version of a great concept album.

Quadrophenia succeeds through its devil-may-care attitude and energy. It feels like a low-budget homemade movie from the period.
