Suburbia (1984) - Penelope Spheeris [Amazon.com] [FR] [DE] [UK]
Suburbia is a movie written and directed by Penelope Spheeris (The Decline of Western Civilization) about suburban punks who run away from home. The kids take up a minimalist, punk rock lifestyle by squatting in abandoned suburban tract homes.
Released in 1984, Suburbia is also known as Rebel Streets and The Wild Side. Red Hot Chilli Peppers' bassist Flea makes a cameo appearance as "Razzle (Mike B. The Flea)". It gives Spheeris' vision of early 1980's punk rock sub culture and an opinion on what drove the youths to become "Punks". Although completely misguided into the punk rock opinions of rape and drug use, it does score right on the money with its comparisons to the hippies of the 60's and the discrimination that many punk rockers faced from others because of the way that they chose to look and the music that they loved. --http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suburbia_(movie) [Oct 2004]
