    Caught by Robert Young. If one can get past a family taking in a drifter, it's very well done.
    Urban Cowboy and Sharkey's Machine also come to mind. If you want to see Williamsburg/greenpoint in the early nineties check out 'Laws of Gravity'

    I don't know what you are talking about. It's hilarious.


    But have you been to Spatula City?

    every wrestler knows and loves this movie....kudos

    Vision Quest really hit the nail on the head when it comes to HS wrestling -- at least in PA. I am decades removed but it takes me immediately back to the mindset.

    Vision Quest was one of the few good things to ever come out of Spokane.
