American Graffiti

American Graffiti ★★★★½

Despite taking place in the 60's, this feels like a night I've lived before...

When times were simpler...
When people said things like "going steady", and spent their weekend nights at drive-in movies, diners, and dancing 'til sunrise.

Long drives at late hours, windows down, radio cranked... a friend in every seat. And the summer air warming the wind around us...

This flick has one of the best soundtracks ever put together, and some great performances too, birthed from the small moments that often pass us by. American Graffiti: a little movie that paved the way for the grandest story ever told- the picture that made Star Wars possible. I love you. Thank you.
