Two Line Reviews - #391

Movie: SLC Punk! (1998)

Plot: Two youngsters in the Salt Lake City take pride in them being the real rebellious 'punks' in town. They lead lives on their own terms with no iota of how the world around them moves. After a sudden shake-up, things get order resumes.

What Works?
The narrative is interesting and the screenplay wanders here and there which suits the mood the film provides.
The role played by Matthew Lillard is the core and his nice performance helps the cause; Bob's character makes the audience sympathise with him.
Some dialogues involving the cult group, the city and the habits are extreme fun!

Not the usual teen-rebel stuff!
