Streets of Fire

Streets of Fire ★★★★½

Set in an ambiguously timed, neon drenched universe, one of 80s power ballads and 50s rock and roll, giving it this ageless and otherworldly feel. The characters populating it are perpetually angry, the only form of communication is through shouting matches or silent glances. The kind of thing that’s so in your face to a point where I could easily see it rubbing someone the wrong way, pretty much a comic book come bursting to life but I was on its wavelength the entire way. Those opening and closing 20 minutes especially, kick all kinds of ass. More rock and roll fables!
