    He can probably see thousands of miles behind him with that many rear-view-mirrors on his scooter.

    Didn't need to convince me, I've got it pre-orderd. Only way this film could be better is if it were in b/w

      B&W, yes!!! So glad to hear someone else who thinks so! I've always thought that it would be like the photos from the liner notes come to life.

    1. The Mod fashion. "My jacket's gonna be cut and slim and checked, Maybe a touch of seersucker, with an open neck." 2.Sting in his bellhop uniform. "Bell Boy! I got to keep running now. Bell Boy! Keep my lip buttoned down. Bell Boy! Carry this baggage out. Bell Boy! Always running at someone's heel." 3. The Who at their very best! "And when your soul tells you to hide Your very right to die denied And in the battle on the streets You fight computers and receipts And when a man is trying to change But only causes further pain You realize that all along Something in us going wrong..."

    1) The settings, locations. 2) Teen Angst at its rebellious best. 3) Early Sting!

    Thanks to HULU I know not to waste my money (it's still available without Hulu+ subscription); below average "coming of age" film imo. Music is pretty good though and the end is very effective. Nice to know Sting was a douche even back then.

    1) "We are the Mods!" - cool portrayal of a very unique British subculture and bygone era 2) "The Punk & the Godfather" - The Who's music come to life 3) "My Generation" - The confusion and angst of youth done right.

    Just watched this film on my Criterion bluray - brilliant the surround mix on The Who music is superb. Loved going back to my teenage ages when I saw this on VHS. Great extra features. I live in Southend on Sea, Essex another sea side town, another bluray to add to my steadily growing Criterion collection.

    This one has never been on my must-see list, but it looks interesting. Funny -- I thought the same thing a couple of other people here wrote, that it would be more effective in black and white.
