Classic: "Debbie: What a lady killer! Gomez: Acquitted. "
I thought this was going to be the male version of "Girls" or "Tiny Furniture" but there were a couple redeeming moments that convinced me it deserved 3 stars.
Spectacular performances all around, but once again Spielberg's trademark gloss and sentimentality are present. Another issue was the tiny and stereotypical roles that African Americans had in this film. It was as if they just walked out of central casting. The film failed to highlight the instrumental role that African Americans had in their own liberation; instead it reinstated freedom was a "gift" from white men.
Guy Pearce's amazing Andy Warhol rivals David Bowie's Andy Warhol in "Basquiat".
"Amanda Buckman: Is that your bathing suit? Wednesday: Is that your overbite?" Definitely one of my childhood favorites.
Is this film playing in the U.S. anytime soon? I live in NYC and I really want to see this.
