no one will ever understand the deep fucking connection I have with this film

For real though

John Hughes was the king of cinema for generations of teenagers.

Such an important film.  There hasn’t been a coming-of-age film like it since.  Truly.  It’s a lost genre.  Also an incredible soundtrack full of great music from its era.



"Reach Out To You" by Adventures

When I reach my hand out all I feel is a cold white wall 
I can see through to you but I can’t touch 
Their eyes don’t feel as friendly and smiles are more invisible to my eyes so black and stone 
I can’t reach out to you like I did before 
I feel myself drifting away from them 
I’m enclosed now, isolated in a place that holds me back 
When I reach out to you I know I seem cold 
but it’s hard to break 
It’s hard for me to find another way 
Nothing’s changed.
