from the trailer park

pump up the volume [1990]

a very good teen us-vs.-them flick.  i can't believe this movie was released way back when.  i've seen it only once at a second-run theater that charged 75 cents admission.  those kinds of movie houses are long gone.  so is the premise of this movie: pirate radio.  christian slater is solid as the brainy outlaw d.j.  samantha mathis is his love interest and she is an utterly unsung actor.  she is, at least for my eyes and ears, a pleasure to watch whatever the film.
