Absolutely appalling that this hasn't received Criterion treatment yet.
★★★★½ review by Scumbalina on Letterboxd
I guess I watch this every week now.
★★★★★ review by ~findlay🔮🔪 on Letterboxd
my landmark 1000th viewing of this.
easily my favourite window of time we have available to us.
the congealing of summer and youth and drinking and friendship and music and style and weirdness of pilgrimage.
summers coming baby, spend it shouting non-sequiturs over peak 80s heavy metal.
★★★½ review by SuspirianKnight on Letterboxd
Not ashamed to say this would’ve been my crowd in ‘86, even though I was three.
