Wasted youth classic from writer / director Penelope Spheeris who tells a brutal, stark and honest story about a group of rejected kids who live, as a kind of alternative family unit, in a condemned house on the margins of LA society. Rejected, inarticulate and unruly trouble is never far away, especially when the macho jocks of straight society decide the punks need to be taught a lesson. "Suburbia" is a great wee film that angrily expresses a loathing for traditional suburbia and its requirements for staid conformity and rampant consumerism.

The film also gets the mood and look of the early '80s street punk scene just about right with performances by T.S.O.L., DI, and The Vandals adding to the verisimilitude.
