Don't You Forget About Me: Scenes From The Class Struggle in Beverly Hills (1989)

For the inaugural edition (a lot of those lately, eh?) I went with a movie I absolutely love that came out 20 years ago. Paul Bartel's final film, and I think his comic masterpiece:


It's as zany as an 80's comedy of manners can be. It's also wittily done and performed to perfection by it's entire cast. Paul Bartel goes out in style. He will be missed.

I do like this movie. The first time I saw it I didn't, but an ex-coworker encouraged me to see it again. The only real problem I have with revisiting it is because apparently this was the film that sent Rebecca Shaffer's stalker over the edge. Cuz you know, she was playing a character he didn't approve of, so he killed her. Nice.

Also, knowing what became of Ray Sharkey is a little disconcerting too.

You have to wonder what the vibe was like on the set of this movie!
