Quadrophenia Reviews

December 27, 2013
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.

"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.
