I'd been looking for this film for years, ever since the very intriguing trailer I saw on my copy of Ziggy Stardust: The Motion Picture. Well, it was worth the wait. Brilliant. Even though one really wonders what the director's cut would have been like, had the producer not insisted on many,many cuts of dialogue to fit in more music -- RSO being a record company and all. Speaking of music, this fillm was the most fantastic rock soundtrack ever. I havethe double LP -- the only form in which it's available, unless I'm very much mistaken -- and if you can find one, you should get it too. Robin Johnson's "Damn Dog" just gets betetr and better, and having finally seen an image to go with it was super.
Tim Curry's Johnny LeGuardia is priceless ("Ooga-booga-booga!"), a ratehr understated role for him, all things considered, and the two young actresses really hold the screen effortlessly -- quite a feat for two unknowns with a mean age of 28.
Some people have called this film deeply depressing. I don't agree. I think that, apart from a slightly ambiguious ending (having garnered the fame, however brief, that she so desires, where to for Nicky?), the message is that, even if you are just a young girl with no prospects, you really can make your dreams happen. It's also a very real fable of the role reversion that happens within hero-worship, when the worshipper (Pammy) realises that her hero (Nicky) is just as dependant on her. A brilliant film. See it. Love it. Recommend it.

With one of the coolest opening sequences going, the film, and the soundtrack, get off to a flying start.

For me, it's the grungy, sleazy, exciting New York of the early 80s that is the main attraction; some great shots over the river, the skyline, and quite a few street scenes.

Others will get more from the central relationship between Nicky (Johnson) and Pamela (Alvarado) - I'm a bit long in the tooth for teenage angst, but the acting is always spirited, and all concerned look like they're having fun, if nothing else. Interesting to see Tim Curry in a less flamboyant role than those with which he is usually associated, although somehow he doesn't do much to create a sympathetic character. DJ characters in films often come across as too smart for their own good, so it's perhaps the fault of the script.

If you're in the right mood, this is a diverting and wholehearted film with some good use of evocative locations and now-bygone New York atmosphere.

Great 80's classic starring the fantastic Tim Curry as a D.J. and two runaway girls out to make fame. Fantastic film track throughout.

Great to finally own this on dvd, class film reminiscent of the 80s with some great tunes as well.

Format: VHS Tape
Bought this on vhs purely because i'm a big fan of the Manic Street Preachers and their debut album contains a cover of a tune called "Damn Dog" and this movie is where it comes from, so for manics obsessives this may be of interest otherwise it is really just a naff early 80's teen movie with little to recommend it.
