Three O’Clock High (1987)

May 19th, 2003  |  Published in Uncategorized

Haven’t written up many movies for a while but I caught “Three O’Clock High” over the weekend and feel like mentioning it: I think it’s my favorite ’80s teen movie (with the possible exception of “Better Off Dead”, and not because it’s campy: it’s pretty well done. It catches the gut-wrenching, heart-sinking misery of getting caught in a bully’s crosshairs, and it does a nice job of creating and exploring a high school ecosystem, from wannabe film students to jock contract “hit men.” Worth a rental. Wish it was on DVD.
