Looking For a Film With a Focus and a Temper?


Apparently, Sonic Youth's landmark 1988 album Daydream Nation has inspired (in name, if nothing else) a...wait for it...teen comedy! Given, its supposed to be an "intellectual comedy a la 'Juno' and 'Election.'" I mean, you can't really name something after this particular record and not make an intellectual product. If this turns out to be "Bring It On 4" there are gonna be riots in the streets. Or should I say teenag--no I probably shouldn't.

If its supposed to be an actual cinemtaic interpretation of the album, it could be a disaster. But if its just a Juno-like "intellectual" comedy...could be ok.

Generally, describing your film as an '"intellectual comedy" a la Juno' is setting yourself up for disaster. But Hayden Panettiere's in it, so I'll be in line.
