Critic Reviews of "Quadrophenia 1979"Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)December 27, 2013
Roddam's look back at an angsty young man in '65 is a throwback to the kitchen-sink dramas that began plumbing the depths of lower-class lives then. Reeking with a restless teen spirit, Quadrophenia leads us down adolescence's blind alleys of rebellion.Scene-Stealers.comSeptember 12, 2012
Director Franc Roddam shot the film with a gritty, realistic feel and the themes of youthful rebellion and confusion are absolutely timeless, magnified by the specificity of the setting rather than being limited by it.Groucho ReviewsSeptember 04, 2012
An anti-musical...based on The Who's 1973 "rock opera" concept album...all the more brilliant for this seemingly counter-intuitive approach. [Blu-ray]Movie MetropolisAugust 29, 2012
When you're an angry young man, there's no better way to prove you're an individual than to dress and act exactly like everybody else.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsJanuary 26, 2008
The film lives through the superb raw angst-ridden performance of Phil Daniels.ColeSmithey.comSeptember 13, 2007
"Quadrophenia" is a glorious representational story of male teen angst that transcends its British locations and great music with a sense of the confused romantic notions that young men the world over carry with them.Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)January 07, 2004
Disappointing film version of a great concept album.Combustible CelluloidJune 13, 2001
Quadrophenia succeeds through its devil-may-care attitude and energy. It feels like a low-budget homemade movie from the period.
