no one will ever understand the deep fucking connection I have with this film
For real though
John Hughes was the king of cinema for generations of teenagers.
Such an important film. There hasn’t been a coming-of-age film like it since. Truly. It’s a lost genre. Also an incredible soundtrack full of great music from its era.
When John just continues to walk across the street without flinching as a car screeches to a stop nearly inches away from him my heart fucking broke. Do you know how much pain he must feel to just not care about his own life? All those years of his father talking shit to him and abusing him left him so hollow. He truly believes he is useless and doesn’t care if he dies. That is what fucking gets to me. This movie, man! Augh!
