Human transactions. "Risky Business" endures as a quintessentially American film. Director Paul Brickman heaps a healthy amount of skepticism, if not outright contempt, on the core tenets of Reagan's Eighties, all while delivering a compelling piece of pop entertainment. Over one long week, Tom Cruise learns everything he could ever want to know about capitalism - and says goodbye to his innocence in the process.
A film that "just glides." It's immediately clear how little Brickman is interested in the normalities of the teenage sex comedy. Surreality is injected stunningly into the narrative: the perceptiveness regarding upper middle-class psychological tendencies, how haunting the tone becomes. Characters move effortlessly between three-dimensionality & pure lyricism. Sex is handled lovingly, seriously. A great masterpiece.
SO, I lost count how many times I saw "Never been kissed" on afternoon televison, and had fantasies about David Arquette as Joel. Finally I watched the original AAAAAAAAND, fuck it, I'm going as Joel to the next halloween party!
Risky Business yang gw sangka2 cuman sekedar teen-comedy seperti film kebanyakan ternyata salah,gejolak ababil anak muda yang sedang galau era taon 80an digambarkan secara apik di film ini dengan gaya yang suram,pokokny film ini berhasillah melebihi ekspektasi gw,sayang sekali gw kurang menikmati nonton film ini,gara2 gw celingak-celinguk ngeliat pintu depan rumah,kali aja ortu datang..takut ketangkap basah gw #halah
Not quite the Graduate but that's ok. As the graduate has touches that are quintessentially 60s so does this have touches that define th era to come. That what a bit of the difference is...risky seems to understand the decade that much better and informs what it would be during the Reagan era.Tom seems to morph into his popular persona throughout film. Mesmerizing acting to see from him.Much more than underwear & sox
A good debut for Paul Brickman and best acting achievement from Tom Cruise. Isu-isu tentang materialism, proses pendewasaan, rasa bersalah, sedikit kapitalisme, dan soal kebebasan berhasil di kemas dengan baik sebagai sebuah satire atau sindiran yang "jleb" terhadap remaja. This is simply the best of Tom Cruise's earlier performance. Near Perfect!
