07.26.06Netflix the "complete novel" edition... although it's been so long since I've seen this... and I think I was reading the book at the same time for school so the memories intertwine and blend together... so I have pretty much no clue which 20 minutes were added in. I guess that can be a testament to Coppola's cut since nothing (aside from one shot at the very beginning which looked like it was taken from a work print) sticks out like a sore thumb as being inserted.

The movie... well it's one thing to see all the actors together when they were young. You see Tom Cruise spaz out in pre-rumble adrenaline much like he spazzed out in the media last summer. Swayze when he was still Swayze and not a joke for some VH1 I Love the 80s pundit. Pre-sex scandal Rob Lowe, mid-career Emilio Estevez... uberyoung/hot Diane Lane, and even Lief Garret. Anyway, the rythms and pacing of the movie are very book-like. I guess that's the point... Actually the whole thing has the same kind of taught-in-highschool dialogue and characters that I remember from all those books they made me read... but I guess that's also sort of the point. Overall I'm glad I rented this and I'll listen to the commentaries before I return it but... not essential for me to own. Sorry, Ponyboy.
