  1. Duncan Gray's rating of the film American Graffiti

    Nostalgia time—not for 1962, but for when George Lucas could do story and character. Seeing this at the Aero, for the first time as an adult, it struck me that it's nearly as mythic as Star Wars: every gem-like moment—the songs, the energy, the (unrealistic) innocent fun—hits your mind like the youth you subconsciously remember but never had. Let the record show that Lucas pioneered the up-all-night teen comedy.

  2. FISCHER's rating of the film American Graffiti

    Un film générationnel qui évoque une époque où les adolescents américains traversaient le monde avec beaucoup d'insouciance et de légèreté. Sur fond sonore de "Wolfman Jack", présentateur radio qui les accompagne partout. A noter le remarquable ballet automobile dans les rues de la ville... www.cinefiches.com

  3. lbunuel's rating of the film American Graffiti

    The sly wittiness blends itself with the extravagant naivete quite seamlessly, creating a weird & numbing effect. Fellini is the obvious reference here: this is one of the few films that were able to reinterpret his aesthetics without generating some fridge-magnet-poetry effect. Beautiful.

  4. Ramzi's rating of the film American Graffiti

    Stunning to think that this was two decades before Dazed and Confused. Superb, small scale film. Killer soundtrack.

  5. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film American Graffiti

    A time of adolescent innocence and groovy cars. A nostalgic piece of a time in America that has long passed, but damnit it looked like a swell time indeed.

  13. Mark O. Stack's rating of the film American Graffiti

    You can argue about whether or not he invented it, but George Lucas certainly refined and popularized the standard teen movie with American Graffiti.

  15. film_lies101's rating of the film American Graffiti

    It's like 'Happy Days' meets 'Dazed & Confused', I dug it

  16. AKFilmFan's rating of the film American Graffiti

    Lucas' "other" directorial triumph is as simple as a Saturday night cruise & nostalgic with a capital "N." Chock-full w/ classic songs, a free-flowing structure of character moments, & the ever-sinking suspicion that change is coming for the characters & their world. It may not be the ultimate teen movie but Lucas writes from what he knows & delivers, even if his writing will ultimately change for better or worse.

  17. Ethan's rating of the film American Graffiti

    Aside from Star Wars this is the greatest thing George Lucas has done. It has great energy, great music, and it would eventually spawn Happy Days with all it's crazy nostalgia.
