    Hysteria, love and death. Dead as dead can be. You'll see us again in some million years...

    One of my favorites. Re-watched tonight with a friend who had never seen it. Unfortunately, the new Kino Blu-ray transfer isn't so good... but it is better than the previous DVD transfer, I guess.

    An incredible apocalyptic thriller that doesn't deserve to be lost in the digital age. WAKE THE FUCK UP CRITERION!

    Appreso per caso da una telefonata che fra un'ora ci sarà un attacco atomico, il protagonista cerca di salvarsi assieme alla donna che ama.
    Ce la farà?
    Colonna sonora dei Tangerine Dream, una LA notturna e minacciosa,
    una corsa contro il tempo, insomma gli ingredienti per un buon film ci sono decisamente tutti.

    Granted, this film came in on the tail end of real nuclear paranoia. My generation was finishing high school and entering college, and stopping to think twice about the "evil empire".

    Miracle Mile is just a wonderful portrait of a normal guy trying to make it through what is possibly the last night on Earth for everyone. It's very '80s, but worth watching...maybe especially for younger people looking for an idea of what people thought could possibly happen at any moment at the time.

    Plus, Anthony Edwards with hair!

    A man picks up a ringing pay phone only to discover that a nuclear attack is imminent. He, and a rag tag group of strangers in a diner, must decide whether to stay put or try and get to safety. Still a fairly powerful film with a lovely lead performance from Anthony Edwards, it sadly hasn't aged that well and looks decidedly dated.

    Atmospheric and heart-stoppingly urgent, Miracle Mile is sort of like a heartfelt After Hours without the jokes. It starts as a twee romantic comedy and then turns into a 'real time' tour through the pre-apocalypse.

    The film's detractors criticise its moodswings, lack of apocalyptic punch, and ham-fisted attempts at profundity. Fans recognise that the moodswings are necessary and that any apocalyptic punch would distract from the film's message (which in no way attempts to be profound): whether you've got 50 minutes or 50 years, find something beautiful to make that time worthwhile.

    VASTLY underrated mystery with an unnerving atmosphere, "Miracle Mile" is beautiful, beguiling, funny and terrifying. Much like a colorful nightmare, scary yet so wildly entertaining you never want to wake up.

    The filmmaker keeps us guessing all the way through, and this is key to the success of the story. On one hand we only know as much as the main character and on the other the possible dilemma he is facing is so dramatic we're totally invested in his…

    Interesting Premise but the acting is god-awful and it's a shame because I really like Mare Winningham, I think this was one of her first roles and she is incredibly hot in this but Anthony Edwards is so monotone in his delivery he just kills this movie, which is a shame because this could have gone somewhere and it ended up going nowhere.

    Alternating between moments of sweetness and moments that shock, this is a fondly remembered movie from the '80s that holds up surprisingly well.
