Our Daily Free Stream: Im Jahr 1979 erblickten drei grosse Gangfilme die Kinoleinwände der Welt: Quadrophenia, The Warriors und Philip Kaufmans The Wanderers. Kaufman blickt (genau wie Quadrophenia) voller Nostalgie zurück... die ganze Rezension sowie die unserer Meinung nach wichtigsten Gang Filme gibts auf der Webpage unserer Videothek cinegeek.de
The film had a lot of character and a lot of potential. However it left far too many questions for its audience. We never really get a sense of the antagonists motives and characters seem to disappear before we can pick sides. T A lot of great moments are undercut and don't live up to their potential. I think the film may accurately depict the subcultures of the 1960s, but it fails as a narrative of any sort.
Loved this, came out the same year as The Warriors but the difference is one is a coming of age story and the other is an action film. Kaufman is one of those directors who disappears for long periods of time and when he comes back its usually a pretty interesting event. Great cast, great music, good story.
It's a shame that The Warriors is a more famous entity than this one. I coincidentally rented this movie ( actually, it was my friend, i was just'"what an idiot, renting some unheard movies that seems like a cheap rip off of The Warriors") and surprisingly entertained by the sheer hip and energy of the film.
