Over the Edge
Feature - Released: 1979
Actor- Played the Role of Mark

"Tomorrow's city...today" is how the planned suburban paradise of New Granada promotes itself, but something has been left out of the plans. No one is paying attention to the town's teens. Return to the pre-Internet days of 1979, when teens had KISS on their T-shirts and Led Zeppelin on their walls. Richie (Matt Dillon) and Carl (Michael Kramer) are two such teens stuck in the planned community of New Granada (rural Colorado). Richie is a two-bit hood and Carl, his partner in mischief (breaking curfew, setting off firecrackers), comes from a more stable environment. Carl steps over the line with renegade bully Mark (Vincent Spano) when he has incriminating evidence he could report to the cops and then also moves in on his woman. Once a gun enters the story, petty crime leads to tragedy and then apocalyptic revenge. Over the Edge gets the details right: the kids, the era, and their frustration with an uncomprehending adult world. At times, it almost feels like documentary, except for a few moments of high Kubrick-meets-Walter Hill drama, Directed by Jonathan Kaplan (The Accused) and shot by Andrew Davis (The Fugitive), Over the Edge has found the same audience as other teen rebellion classics like co-writer Tim Hunter's River's Edge. The period-perfect soundtrack ups the ante with potent tracks from Cheap Trick, the Ramones, the Cars and Van Halen, providing the film's rock-n-roll heart.
