Permanent Record


Time Out says

This second feature from the director of Old Enough must be counted a disappointment. A well-intentioned study of high-school kids coping (and not coping) with the pressures of adolescence, its naturalistic style only makes the more overt dramatic elements look forced and clichéd. Basically a non-starter, it does showcase a sympathetic performance from the very happening Keanu Reeves. The music is by Joe Strummer, and Lou Reed has a cameo, but it's par for the course that Gilbert and Sullivan get more of a look in.
