Love this Soundtrack
not a great movie, but a killer soundtrack that i still listen to today.
Slice of life movie that examines two girls from different sides of the street as they explore night life and night people in run down Times Square New York in the 1970's. Great punk/new wave soundtrack. The two girls develop a sexual relationship.
Classic pre Madonna NYC street scene movie. Cool soundtrack - kind of a musical. Makes squatting look cool. Best enjoyed as I did tonight - as a random play on late night television with the ads on mute or pause. Lesbian overtones. It also is reminiscent of Puberty Blues but on the other side of the world. And the actor who plays Frankfurter in Rocky Horror co-stars as a dj.
I saw this when it came out. One reason, Tim Curry. The soundtrack is 80s personified. NYC is the old Skool gritty city before Disney and Bloomberg & trust fund kids got a hold of it. The acting is horrendous with the exception of Robin Johnson on a few takes. The scene that stands out for me to this day, wearing trash bags in the rain with boom box on shoulder. That was punk rock NYC of the 80s.oh, I have the original soundtrack on vinyl. It still holds up!
Remember watching this in the early 80s... It's dated poorly and only a couple of good songs on the soundtrack lifted it above 1 star
Awesome time capsule of the late 70's early 80's punk rock new wave and of pre mainstream times square back when it was cool, edgy and gritty, this films features a fucking stunning soundtrack full of tunes by lou reed, The Cure, Roxy Music, Gary Numan and The Ramones. Plus great performances by Robin Johnson and Trini Alvarado and Tim Curry, this is a hidden classic of anti-establishment cinema.
The most inspirational rebellious teens movie ever made.
Just had the opportunity to watch this again for the first time in many years. I was pleasantly surprised at how well this film holds up. There are some really great moments and performances. Specifically Robin Johnson as Nicky. Yes, the movie does have its problems. It's little adolescent and melodramatic at times, but then again its a movie about adolescents. Anyway, at the least, this film is a great time capsule of the real Times Square before it became Disney-fied.
I'd been waiting to see this for a while now...I really enjoyed it...great characters and a very interesting story...the standout had to benew comer Robin Johnson...very interesting actress...Moyle must have found her on the street cause you just can't act certain things...I can see the trade marks that Moyle would use later with his other films, Pump up the Volume and Emipre Records...loved the music of the early 80's...
overall a very impressive little film that seems to have gone under the radar...anyone who likes Moyles stuff should check this out...they don't make moives like this much anymore..
