    Total Film magazine had this as their number 4 movie of 1985 ahead of movies such as Withness, Pale Rider, The Breakfast Club and Re-Amimator. The acting is superb, but there is nothing special about the plot and there are no surprises. The worst thing is the lack of logic in the actions performed by the characters. spoiler 8 years 2 months ago

    Oh my. Young, horny, angsty and gay Daniel Day Lewis - enough said. This movie is just a complete, sweet mess. 5 years 4 months ago
