slemslempike: (x: solarbabies)
I came back to a small heap of post. Ignoring the BL articles and the council letter about benefit that has it all wrong yet again, I leapt with alacrity to open the most promising package, which I had won on ebay shortly before I left for Berlin. It was Solarbabies. This is a film from 1986, starring Peter Deluise. Not that he gets the billing he deserves. It's a brilliant piece of cinema about rollerskating orphans in the future, with a generous side helping of ecological narrative. Online reviews are unsurprisingly scathing. Tall poppy syndrome, you see. My icon is of Solarbabies.

Spoilers! And pictures! )
