80’s movies I forgot to watch the first time around month Post #4

Say Anything

Why haven’t I seen it before?
My main image of this movie is that of a mopey John Cusak holding a ghetto blaster over his head to play a song to a girl who one presumes broke his heart. I just couldn’t bring myself to watch it.

After viewing: As I was watching the opening credits, I did notice several respected names flashing by: Polly Platt, Laslo Kovacs, Cameron Crowe. It turns out to actually be a sweet little romance and the lead actors (and John Mahoney as the dad) are engaging and Crowe’s story usually hits the right tone.

And cinematographer Laslo Kovacs really gets around.
