As film accrues decades.
Perhaps another century.
Even Godard hired Molly Ringwald.
Likely because these films touched him in some sort of Rebel Without a Cause way.
Either that, or the producer forced her on him.
But this film is really special.
Emilio Estevez is a dead ringer for Michael Flynn.
Which brings us back again:
Is #QAnon real?
We are drip-dropping back to war mode.
Full-on, shit-slinging war mode.
But for cinematic purposes, it is most direct to point out the two essential personages in this film:
Ally Sheedy and Judd Nelson.
And, boiled down, Judd Nelson.
Sheedy is attractive.
The Sheedy makeover is kinda lame.
The Estevez swoon mostly hollow.
But Judd Nelson is solid to the end.
This is a powerful film.
John Hughes created and directed the reality of John Bender (Nelson) onto the screen.
That’s would have been enough verismo for an entire career.
