AN ORAL HISTORY OF OVER THE EDGE --THE GREATEST TEEN MOVIE EVER MADE
I don't hand out compliments lightly but believe me when I say Over The Edge is the greatest teen movie ever made. Mainly because it was just pure teen rebellion, nobody really learned anything and the end wasn't a hug that brought the world together. The funniest part is that this many years later the SAME STUFF is happening only the violence is getting worse.
Over The Edge was the first movie role for Matt Dillon who joined an all unknown cast in 1979. The movie was only released for a month or so before being pulled under fear of rioting. It bounced around at art theaters and such before finally getting a DVD release in 2005. If you're unsure of the awesomeness check out the trailer:
To celebrate the majesty of Over The Edge the folks over at Vice Magazine have written a story titled "OVER THE EDGE: AN ORAL HISTORY OF THE GREATEST TEEN REBELLION MOVIE EVER"
