As a side note to the last post, check out Miracle Mile
, a movie starring Anthony Edwards with hair (and skinny ties), in which nuclear holocaust comes to L.A. Bad 80's clothes
, bad 80's stereotypes, and some wooden dialogue, but as the inevitable end
turns out the lights on civilization, everything comes together in a convincing portrait of people trapped in a horrifying, incomprehensible nightmare
. It's been making the cable rounds lately, and it's worth a look.
