#TBT at the Laemmle: Quadrophenia

October 20, 2016 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

It’s Mods versus Rockers!!!

This film version of the Who’s rock opera QUADROPHENIA makes a few tentative stabs at “explaining” the alienation of 1960s British working-class youth, but its major selling point is its nonstop rock and R&B musical score, including the hit single “Love Reign O’er Me.” Phil Daniels (replacing the original opera’s Roger Daltrey) plays Jimmy, a member of a well-dressed, hopped-up teenaged gang called the Mods, forever duking it out with the cycle-punk Rockers. The rivalry between the two gangs comes to a head during three tempestuous days in the seaside town of Brighton. Here Jimmy makes love to lovely local Steph (Leslie Ash), and forges a strong friendship with unofficial Mod leader Ace Face (Sting). A series of disappointments and setbacks in his own London neighborhood convinces Jimmy to return to Brighton to pick up the pieces. If you aren’t fascinated by the visual pyrotechnics of QUADROPHENIA, just close your eyes and revel to the soundtrack music of the Who, James Brown, Marvin Gaye, the Chiffons, Manfred Man, and many others.
