There's something about black and white checkered miniskirts in 1982 thatsums up an entire era."Smithereens" documents a brief history of an archetype that many arefamiliar with: the Hip Urban Street Punk on a Path to Nowhere.What makes this film superb is that it treats the subject with a frankhone...
Unromantic view of East Village life perfectly captures the people and theplace. Depressing and totally convincing. I love the first couple ofminutes, which so perfectly and wordless establishes the character of theprotagonist and the style of the film. And the score is terrific. Ican'tbelieve t...
I watched this film probably about 2 years ago at some very early hour ofthe morning. The Smithereens was one of those films which was strangelycompelling in an empty sort of way, there is this incredibly overpoweringearly 80's economically, socially and artistically bleak skew oneverything.This fee...
i quite disagree with "dehlia"'s comment, this movie is anything but dull.It is an excellent film that does seemingly document the early new yorkstyle of punk/new wave rock and it's main character Wren who is asmentionedon a road to nowhere. The film comes off as a really excellent studentfeature, ...
(SPOILERS, kind of)I love this movie. Susan Berman plays Wren, a trash queen who findsherselfhomeless and living in a van with her new admirer, Paul, as she attemptstoshove her way into punk rock with Eric (Richard Hell), who isn't exactly agreat guy to trust.This is a great movie if you're just tir...
Wren (Susan Berman) is a restless young woman trying to break into themusic scene in NY of the early 1980s. A young, handsome and trustingman named Paul (Brad Rijn) falls for her--but she just uses him andtries to hook up with self-centered Eric (Richard Hell) who says he hascontacts to get a career...
I don't care what the naysayers below think. I like this little film.And I think the soundtrack blows the pants off of Penelope Spheeris'"Decline of Western Civilization" that was released not too long before thisone. I'd love to find the "Smithereens" soundtrack on CD! Both this and "...Civilizati...
We know people like this: rootless, aimless, self-absorbed, and using. Thisis a realistic portrait of such a young woman who, when everything smashesto "smithereens," may or may not have an epiphany, in an ending reminiscentof the last frame in 400 Blows. Great directorial debut....
Terrific poverty-row character study about Wren(Susan Berman)a youngwoman who reckons herself a possible punk-rock manager, desperatelylatching onto Eric(Richard Hell), a supposed rock "star" who she seesas a future success in the making. Paul(Brad Rijn), a kind-heartedportrait artist from Oklahoma,...
Things to be aware of: This movie is a downer.This movie is interminably slow at times. Feel free to skip forwardwith the remote. There is not a lot of plot to miss.Having offered those two disclaimers, this movie is definitely worthwatching if you are inclined towards depressing tales of urbanoutca...
Ambitious, but aimless, amoral, abrasive and opportunistic Jersey girlhustler Wren (winningly played with considerable spunky panache bySusan Berman) tries desperately to break into the lower Manhattan musicscene as a punk rock band manager, but since she has neither talent norconnections this prove...
I love love love this film. Susan Seidelman showing massive potential.Perhaps because this was her first film, we get to meditate within theextremely stark minimalism that so completely captures The Scene. Lotsof reviewers have incorrectly alluded to the "punk rock" scene--this isNYC well past the h...
Susan Berman plays young woman named Wren who hangs out in New YorkCity's punk underground, but who is unable to translate her interest inthe burgeoning music scene into a lucrative form of work. DirectorSusan Seidelman, who also conceived the original story withco-screenwriter Ron Nyswaner, underst...
When it comes to catch the New York Underground 19-eighties-mood,'Smithereens' hits it right. This film really makes a lovely reminderfor everyone around at the time, as well as a perfect introduction forthose who weren't.Of course 'Smithereens' music is quite in tune. Nevertheless, the mostappealin...
Susan Seidelman seems to have had a decent career with a few top notchcredits under her belt. I'm certainly glad she bounced back from thisfilm which seems to have its admirers. I'm not one of them.I've seen better acting in high school plays than I did in Smithereens.The plot such as it is involved...
Wren is a dirty birdie. A vagrant punkette skumbag who wears a checkeredvinyl mini-skirt with blue pantyhose and pink hi-top Converse.Her only possessions are a busted-up portable TV and a trash bag full ofreally scary dipsy-dumpster punk fashions (think Pat Benatar 1981 orPunkyBrewster 1984). She l...
Considering the extremely low budget, this film is pretty impressive. Itstarts out entertaining and absorbing as we get to know the main characterand all the travels and travails she encounters on her quest for fame.However, the story doesn't develop much after that and pretty much goesnowhere, leav...
So many indie films want you to believe New York is this bleak, dirtyplacewhere everyone lives on the street. In reality, there must be dozens offilmcrews running into each other in any given vacant lot trying to hide thefact that it's the center of a bustling film culture. If there were somanykids ...
In the era of Punk rock (well when America caught on anyway!) asensitive would-be artist (Brad Rijn) and a female street hustler(Susan Berman) have an uneasy relationship in the less fashionable partof NYC.Susan Seidelman had a surprise hit with Desperately Seeking Susanstraight after this and then ...
A rating of "1" does not begin to express how dull, depressing andrelentlessly bad this movie is. ...
"Smithereens" is the kind of worthless flick which just hangs out amongthecable channels taking up space like a cheesy dime novel in the publiclibrary. A worthless bit of tripe and first effort for mediocre directorSeidelman, the film is fraught with bad acting, bad sound, bad camerawork,and poor qu...
