    The poster made me think in the 90s that this was a cool fun hip hangout film like the rest of Linklater's stuff. It's pretty much the anti-Dazed. Very downbeat because of the material it's based on and the suburban angst it captures so well. Just not really that fun as a result, but can't blame it for what it is. I love seeing all these actors though and the performances are all strong and it takes some dark and unexpected turns.

    I remember my cousins and I rented this when we were 10 or 11 from the video store and my mom made us bring it back. She said we weren't ready for this kind of movie. Damn, watching it now for the first time at 34, and I have to ask - When are you ever supposed to be ready for this kind of thing? Brilliant direction from Demme, a smart script, and wonderful acting all around. It definitely deserves the acclaim. That last scene in Buffalo Bill's house is the definition of cinematic suspense. Completely terrifying.
