Beyond Clueless (Lyne, 2014): BFI Southbank, NFT1, 8.45pm


This better be good. I helped to fund this film (in a modest way) through Kickstarter. It's been a popular ticket but definitely worth travelling to BFI Southbank on the night for returns.

Here is the BFI introduction:

As part of our Teenage Kicks season, Sonic Cinema presents the London premiere of film critic Charlie Lyne’s bold and stylish feature debut, with live music from critically acclaimed indie-pop duo ‘Summer Camp.’ Part documentary, part essay and part experimental driftwork, Beyond Clueless explores and celebrates the world of the American teenager, complete with its jocks, nerds, freaks, geeks, cheerleaders, angst, attitude and rebellion, as depicted by countless movies made in the wake of 1995’s breakout success Clueless. Lyne combines an intricate collage of scenes from over 200 teen movies with hypnotic narration by cult teen star Fairuza Balk (The Craft) and sophisticated pop from ‘Summer Camp,’ to create a dreamlike and highly original cinematic experience. Followed by a special DJ set in the benugo bar until late.

Here is the Guardian's Henry Barnes' review.
