Shot/Reverse Shot: Episode 71 - High School

Back in June of this year, Joe and I watched the great documentary/film essay Beyond Clueless. Written and directed by film critic Charlie Lyne (Ultra Culture, The Guardian), the film is a deeply personal and idiosyncratic look at the vast and varied array of teen movies release between 1995 and 2004. We use the film as a jumping off point to discuss that period in teen film history, where we think teen movies are going, and why they seem to be such a uniquely American genre. Also, you can hear Joe's interview with Mr. Lyne about the film at Sheffield Doc/Fest.
