Times Square is the perfect early eighties rebel film, preceding the brat pack and wearing its undeniable coolness like a cloak. The flick was directed by Allan Moyle and stars Robin, Johnson, Trini Alvarado, and Tim Curry. The killer new wave soundtrack features Gary Numan, The Ramones, The Pretenders, Roxy Music, Patti Smith, The Cure, XTC, Lou Reed, Talking Heads and Suzi Quatro.

This marks the first post in a series that explore the films of the past that may not be masterpieces (some may be downright bad), but for some reason remind me of when (pre-digital) film was an easier format to explore. Those great video store days. Here's to Kult Klassics.
