Critic Reviews of "Suburbia"AV ClubJune 09, 2014
It still shows enormous empathy and sensitivity in capturing the angst and alienation of American youth, making it seem both rooted in a specific time and place and strangely timeless.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
A justifiably angry film, fast and full of violent action, though there's plenty of humour too; and the lack of originality is amply compensated for by its manifest sincerity.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Penelope Spheeris's Suburbia is a clear- eyed, compassionate melodrama about a bunch of young dropouts who call themselves ''The Rejected'' or, for short, the TR's.TV GuideJune 09, 2014
Although hardly believable, the story is effective, making its rather unwholesome characters sympathetic.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsDecember 20, 2007
Its sincere sympathy for the runaway kids is what elevates this standard rebellious teen flick above many others in this genre.EmanuelLevy.ComFebruary 09, 2007
This drama (aka The Wild Side), the first of Spheeris' two youth movies of the 1980s, concerns angry boys whose rebelliousness in reflected in cutting their hair instead of growing it long; the mood is right, the text is not.DVDTalk.comJanuary 08, 2006
"I was a good filmmaker ... before I sold out," says Penelope Spheeris on her audio commentary, and it's tough not to appreciate the gal's candor.Film4May 24, 2003
The film now has a glow of roseate, nostalgic charm -- partly a product of the winning incompetence of most of the performances.NetflixNovember 07, 2002
Gritty Los Angeles punk-rock chronicle is ugly, raw and realistic.
