Never Gets Old

I don't care how many times I see this movie - it NEVER gets old. NYC was a very big deal back in the day, and this movie captured a lot of it. I miss the Danceteria and the Pyramid Club. What a fun time. The movie is very lighthearted and fun. Makes me want to go back to NYC, even though I know the good times are gone. boohoo

An Off-beat Comedy Triumph

A case of amnesia, complicated by mistaken identity, is what drives this quirky, lovable comedy. But it is more than a comedy. It morphs into a love story and a tale of self-discovery.

"Desperately Seeking Susan" is a clever, quirky film that delights at every turn. Madonna, in her first significant film role, is the eponymous Susan--a wild woman unrestrained by conventions or predictability. Rosanna Arquette plays Roberta, the amnesiac who invents herself using obscure clues in a hatbox as she attempts to discover her true identity. Both women are terrific.

Quirkiness is what drives this film--the story, the dialogue, the casting, the wardrobe, the scenery. Shot in and around New York City, much of the action takes place in neon nightclubs and graffiti-filled alleyways, feeling like it is in the same neighborhood as Mushnick's Flower Shop. Also, look for the snippets of a magic act, a ventriloquist act and a stand-up routine.

Director Susan Seidelman deserves credit for this conglomeration of playness and kitsch, and so do the designers whose attention to detail is apparent in every frame.

Weak Plot

(Flash Review)

A bored housewife, for some reason still foggy to me, followed a frequent personal ad in the paper seeking to find out who Susan is. Weak spark for the plot. So during the scene where she sees Susan, she acquires the jacket and falls down, bangs her head and gets amnesia. Because of this jacket, people think she is Susan. Confusing plot points occur, Madonna leads a wild existence, this other gal falls in love 'as Susan' while being married and all story lines collide at the end without a good payoff. One bright spot was the person in charge of lighting did a nice and subtle job of making grimy New York city look interestingly colorful in the 80's. Check another big title 80's film off the listÂ…eye roll.
