08.19.14Internet This was available on HBOGO and I feel like it's been a long time since I last saw it. I was also in the mood to spend some time in late 70s NYC again.

The tone of this movie really is something. I feel like I've read or heard in interviews how the theming of the gang outfits and make-up weren't intended to be humorous or exaggerated so maybe that's why, but something about the straight 100% seriousness of everybody coupled with a total fantasyland look... it's almost like this is a post-apocalypse movie without the apocalypse. All these nomadic tribes... everyone's performances are really stiff... I don't know it's just a really weird tone that I think totally works and makes the movie unique.

And I can't watch the first scene without thinking about this old rave album I have by a band named Messiah. Pretty much every line out of Cyrus' mouth was sampled in that album. They even had a song called 20,000 Hardcore Members.
