I haven't seen the movie, so I can't give you *my* opinion on it. However,
I do recall a line in Film Threat about how a movie like S.F.W (So Fucking
What) is appreciated much more by some of my age, contrasted with the "all-too-
slick Hollywood gloss of Reality Bites".
I mean, this ignores questions of definition - I'm 21, ostensibly a member
of Gen-X, and the films I've gone to see in the past three months are
NBK, Pulp Fiction, Ed Wood and Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. When Reality
Bites came, I was more interested in the writer and how she got her
script produced ;)
