Critic Reviews for Beyond Clueless

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (2)

  • One of the extraordinary things about Beyond Clueless is the reminder of all today's A-list actors who started out as eerily, almost waxily young stars in teen films.

  • Lyne knows and loves his source material -- despite, if not because of its flaws. His passion for the genre is evident and his theories are presented with a rigour that pays the films the respect he feels they deserve.

  • Teen film genre docu features sex, profanity, violence.

  • Beyond Clueless may be messy in places but it's also strange, occasionally disorienting and full of flashes of madness. Not unlike adolescence itself.

  • Claims to celebrate 200 classic American coming-of-age movies from the past 20 years or so, but really amounts to little more than a barrage of clips stitched together.

Audience Reviews for Beyond Clueless

Baby director Charlie Lyne is a mere twenty-four years young, but the guy has already found his footing in the world of film. A constant contributor to faire such as Buzzfeed, Vice, and The Guardian, Lyne understands the complexities and nuances of modern filmmaking as well as the nostalgia that we millennials crave. In his first full-length film Lyne tackles the teen genre of filmmaking, ranging from comedy, to horror, to drama, looking to the undercurrent that threads together all these films for the core teen audience.
