Quadrophenia

by

Dir. Franc Roddam (1979). BAM’s celebration of everyone’s third-favorite classic-rock band peaks the rare rock movie that works as drama. A tough-minded, dirt-under-the-fingernails portrait of disaffected London youth in the early ’60s, Quadrophenia still reigns o’er mod cons thanks to that hard edge, its stellar, crashing Who tunes, and that motorbike tour of the White Cliffs of Dover.
