American Graffiti (IB Tech Print)

Hop in the passenger seat and cruise the Modesto strip in George Lucas’ coming-of-age classic, American Graffiti! With college on the horizon, a group of high school grads celebrate the end of summer with a night of mischief and mayhem, drag racing and drive-ins, and uncover all the anxiety and excitement the future holds. Take a trip down memory lane in this nostalgic homage to the early ’60s, which features the iconic voice of DJ Wolfman Jack and an unforgettable soundtrack that brought us the most enduring hits of the era.

“The freshest American movie in years and may well prove to be a watershed film of major importance.” – The Hollywood Reporter

“This superb and singular film catches not only the charm and tribal energy of the teen-age 1950s but also the listlessness and the resignation that underscored it all like an incessant bass line in one of the rock-‘n’-roll songs of the period.” – Jay Cocks, TIME Magazine

The Lords of Flatbush

A mid 70’s gem set in 1958, Sylvester Stallone and Henry Winkler star together as Brooklyn greaser delinquents, in this coming of age story about four high school buddies trying to figure out their transition from youth to adult hood, bonded together as the leather clad gang – The Lords of Flatbush – who will do anything to prolong their friendship and avoid the responsibilities of the adult world. The story follows Chico (Perry King), who has his sights set on the out of his league Jane (Susan Blakely), while Stanley (Sylvester Stallone) wrestles with doing the right thing after knocking up local girl Frannie (Maria Smith). Henry Winkler’s toothy grin and cartoonish likability as Butchey really paves the way for Fonzie’s meteoric popularity that would soon follow, and Paul Mace rounds out the cast as Wimpy, a Lord who will follow his buddies anywhere. Filmed in an almost documentary style (co-directed by Martin Davidson and Stephen F. Verona), the scenes have an improvisational feel, with credited screenplay contributions by Stallone himself.

“A small masterpiece that places the mood and general ethos of the ’50s with absolute precision and total affection.” – Geoff Andrew, Time Out

It’s a great followup featuring an excellent ensemble and a stellar soundtrack of classic songs.

More American Graffiti may be one of the most innovative and ambitious films of the last five years… dazzling to the eye… what Norton and producer Howard Kazanjian are attempting, and what a variety of technicians pull off flawlessly, is daring” – Dale Pollock, Variety
