Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains

Thursday, January 28, 2010

The other day I watched this movie, which was released in 1982. It stars a young Diane Lane and it's basically a teen angst movie. After her mother's death, Corrine Burns (aka Third Degree Burns) forms a punk band with her sister & cousin. She becomes a big hit, and gets a big following of fans and her fans dress exactly like her - what they call, the "skunk look".

The band gets a lot of media attention, questioning whether or not they're appropriate for these young fans.

Anyway, it just reminded me a bit of Lady Gaga. Some people think she's a freak, others think she's amazing. Plus, they both are missing pants. haha

Lisa said...

It makes me curious to check out this movie, I've never seen Diane Lane when she was so young - and she looks totally different from the stuff we see her in now (cue: Nights in/of/under Rodanthe).

Plus on some parallel, it makes me want to see The Runaways with Kristen Stewart.
