Julien Temple's bravura musical adaptation of Colin MacInnes' novel set in the late '50s youthquake London was an absolute flop upon release, but has since
won reappraisal and a cult coterie for its stylized, Hollywood-by-way-of-MTV production numbers, saturated neon ambiance, and a killer soundtrack featuring
David Bowie, Sade, and Ray Davies. All have parts in the film orbiting around party-mad teens, Eddie O'Connell and Patsy Kensit (in her breakout role) as
they fall in and out of love against a backdrop of cool jazz, simmering racial tension, and pop machinations. This is a rare chance to luxuriate the film's
gaudy charms in glorious 35mm.
