S.F.W - The Complete Lowdown
Bookish | United Kingdom | 10/31/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It's begining to show it's age, but this satrical drama remains a topical dissection of the American facination with the cult of the non-celebrity. Stephen Dorff is the angry young man who is amoung a group taken hostage by camcorder-weilding anarchists. They force the networks to broadcast their tapes, but it's the rebellious Dorff who soon becomes the star attraction. Dorff is suitably surly as the man fighting against his 15 minutes of fame and there's good suppourting work from a pre-fame Reese Witherspoon and Jake Busey. Director Jefery Levy demonstrates a sympathetic understanding of ninties teenage alienation. Overall and interesting and enthralling movie that is well worth watching."
A Film Way Ahead Of It's Time
Bookish | 07/25/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Take a look at this film and you will be amazed at how it predicted the future -- from OJ to JFK jr. Also, how many films have there been since SFW that have dealt with the same themes, but not nearly as well? NBK; Mad City; Truman Show; Ed TV -- SFW is, quite simply, a work of genius -- even more amazing: the book was written by a 17 year old college kid in 1987! The film, while it parodies teen romance films, also deals with the way popular culture (not just the media) take a person or event, uses it to sell, sell, sell, then discards it, usually destroying it/him. The big cycle of pop culture. Check it out for yourself."

"A little bit of everything in this movie, comedy sarcasm, violence, sex, srugs and great soundtrack, Gwar, Manson, Soundgarden... I can't believe it's almost impossible to find now...."
