Description
Narrated by cult teen star Fairuza Balk, Beyond Clueless is a dizzying journey into the mind, body, and soul of the teen movie, as seen through the lens of more than 200 modern coming-of-age classics. In the decade following the breakout success of Clueless (1995), Hollywood made hundreds of movies exploring the teenage psyche. Most were set in the drama-rich landscape of the American high school, complete with jocks and cheerleaders, freaks and geeks, and countless sub-cliques in between. This stylish film, with an original musical score by the band Summer Camp, takes us deep into the teenage psyche, exploring themes of alienation and loss of self and scouring the often amusing myriad of emotional tempests that dominate the teenage years. Part adolescent fever dream, part roving visual essay, the film puts Hollywood's high school under a microscope on a quest to lay bare the genre's beating heart. - Chris Metzler
