    “Your age is the hardest age
    Everything drags and drags”
    -The Replacements

    While maybe not reaching the same emotional depth as The Last Picture Show’s bleak small town slow collapse or hitting the Gen X zeitgeist as well as Fast Times At Ridgmont High or Pump Up The Volume. Over The Edge is one of the rawest portrayals of suburban teenager alienation and lacks any of the sentimentality of some the other “prestige coming of age films”. Some might say…

    God recognizes God. 

    A film that encompasses all aspects of the term epic, from action sequences to a sweeping story to a giant fuck you to the British Empire. While there’s no denying this film is propaganda (Literally a guy saves himself from being burned by wrapping himself in the flag), but it’s the best propaganda film of the year (Sorry Top Gun: Maverick).

While I especially don’t think Tarantino is a genius, the climatic fight in this film is the best argument he could. I don’t know…

    Karim Aïnouz really deserves more respect. Between this & Invisible Life, it’s clear he’s got a great eye for beautiful gritty films. Not to mention although both films are tragedies in ways, he at no point wants to make misery porn (Thank god!).
