“Real G’s move in silence like lasagna” - Ingmar Bergman
I’d group this together with a number of other films I really love that deal with this topic of marginalized youth. The 400 Blows and Los Olvidados come to mind especially. I don’t know why, but I just have a soft spot for stories about disaffected kids trying to navigate their way through this messed up world.
The cinematography here is wonderful too. So many unique compositions and I especially loved how the camera often withheld information from the viewer only to deliver when it really mattered.
