A beautifully candid exploration of the darkness that hides behind the beautifully manicured homes of suburbia. It's an Eisenhower-era expose about love and marriage which digs deeper into the sterile American suburbs than any other film from the era.
Paz de la Huerta as a completely stylish and submissive femme but not so fatale in "The Limits of Control" (2009): an underrated art film about a nameless assassin (Isaach de Bankole) who refuses to have sex and drinks two espressos in two separate cups every single day. This is a mediation on the beauty of loneliness.
Hauntingly feminist horror that depicted female power in 1979 in ways that we seem incapable of doing in 2019...
Sarah Connor is a feminist icon because of this film.
Madonna's first appearance in a major motion picture ("Crazy for You" scores much of the film's sentimentality). Louden's macho trip is a delicious exploration of teen masculinity, sex, male rage, romance, small-town paranoia, and high school wrestling --- a sport we often forget exists due to Title IX budget cuts. "Vision Quest" is basically a much darker and less righteous version of "Karate Kid," with some of the tragic but triumphant male fantasy of Stallone's "Rocky." Unlike "Daniel Son" and the "Italian Stallion," for most of the film, Louden is a ridiculous heel and a pervert, but somehow you're compelled to follow him on his "vision quest" to go from being a confused teenage to being an even more confused man. He bleeds form the nose a few times along the way. This is a James Dean film for a teen-sex movie audience.
