Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Michael Hastings
Writer/director Allan Moyle updates the ideals of the 1960s and 1970s in this story of a would-be revolutionary (Christian Slater) who incites teen revolt with his basement pirate radio station. Slater's "Hard Harry" on-air persona is equal parts Lenny Bruce and Jack Kerouac, and the film's first half cruises by on his bawdy, inflammatory dispatches. Harry's song choices as a DJ are stellar as well: underground angst anthems from Sonic Youth, Peter Murphy, and The Pixies mingle with a few classic picks from the Leonard Cohen songbook. Though Moyle resorts to typical, anti-authoritarian plot contrivances in the latter half, Slater and romantic interest Samantha Mathis coax convincing emotion out of the script's more leaden moments. The film's righteous, us-versus-them feel has more in common with 1950s high school pictures like Rebel Without a Cause than with Slater's previous teen effort, the ironic Heathers.

    Over The Airwaves, It's Mystery Student Vs. The High School Principal.

    I first caught this movie on My Network TV a few months ago. It was/is so great that I just had to order, buy and own a copy of this eventually. A high school student named Mark Hunter, who is mostly diffident, quiet and withdrawn, suddenly showcases a more confident, outspoken and outgoing side when he gets behind the mic as his radio D.J. alter-ego, under the alias Hard Harry. But nobody would learn the truth as to who Hard Harry is until later. The radio was used as Mark's only means for him to boost his self-confidence and he'd later learn that after the truth comes out, he doesn't need to get his message across through that anymore. Because he actually had it in him the whole time. It's his duty as the announcer to convey to his schoolmates advice when any of them are having problems and that he plans to take a stand against the principal when a conspiracy that's been made takes place. This has since become one of my favorite early '90s movies that I discovered, coming across it on the air (regular/network t.v. or cable). And it's one of the best stories (Fiction or non-fiction) ever brought from script to screen. There is such a strong lesson in this for the aforementioned reasons that I already covered. And they're why no one should skip this at all. If anyone reading this is also diffident, then after seeing this movie, you just may find the self-assurance in yourself too. If you could just dig deep enough. Recommended and not to be skipped.
