Karen Healey has started a wonderful series of essays about great teen movies and their messages. So far she’s covered Bring It On, But I’m a Cheerleader, Saved! — and all those essays are linked from the latest entry, covering one of the all-time classics of the genre, Clueless.
Her points are insightful and tackle what entertainment shows us about our culture, one of my favorite types of analysis. (Even if she doesn’t like Heathers — and I hope she tells us more about that soon.) Heck, you could just use her viewing list as a guide to the best to rewatch.
