    Girls Just Want to Have Fun

    Had never seen this before stumbling across it on Pluto. A few thoughts:

    1)  Jonathan Silverman’s creepy character is now obviously in prison. 
    2) Helen Hunt has always had the voice of a 40-year-old woman. 
    3) Hey, that’s Richard Blade. 
    4) Mohawked Chicago punks love elaborately choreographed dance routines.

    ★★★½

    First film after a long, moving-induced moview drought. A gem that I'd never seen, Figgis' feature debut is a noir-y, super-stylish mood piece that would pair nicely with one of Wim Wenders' explorations of American cultural imperialism. (The backdrop is Newcastle celebrating "America Week" as American investors eye it for redevelopment.) Great Roger Deakins' cinematography and the weirdest four-hander cast you'll ever see (at least in an '80s movie): Tommy Lee Jones, Melanie Griffith, Sean Bean, and Sting.

    Perfect movie for eight-year-olds who are also college students.

    Kind of thought of this as second-tier Scorsese—second tier being a still pretty high perch—until this recent rewatch. When I got to the monologue I felt like I was watching pretty much a perfect movie.
