The Wanderers a 1979 film directed by Philip Kaufman is not the finest teenage Rock and Roll films ever made. Pitching its tent some way between American Graffiti and The Warriors, it's diverting, but hardly essential. Where it does excel is in its soundtrack, which is one of the finest every made. Documenting that strange, but strangely exciting period between Elvis enlisting and going to Germany and The Beatles arriving on American shores it's thrill packed from start to finish. The next three weeks here should give testament to that.
