Don't You Forget About Me DVD Review

Don't You Forget About Me DVD Review

Synopsis: How did John Hughes capture the growing pains of adolescence so perfectly? Why do his films resonate with those that grew up with them, and those that have just discovered them? Why did he leave? Armed with those and many other questions, a documentary was put into production. It wasn't long before interviews with Hughes alumni and those influenced by Hughes transpired, shedding light on Hughes and his work. However, after 2 years of compiling hundreds of interviews there was still a very important one missing: John Hughes. DON'T YOU FORGET ABOUT ME cuts insightful and entertaining interviews with the honest, humorous, and tension filled road trip the neophyte filmmakers make to Chicago hoping to secure an interview with the reclusive director and closure for themselves. Interviews with Kevin Smith, Mia Sara, Ally Sheedy, Judd Nelson, Andrew McCarthy and more!

Review: The 80s wouldn't have been what it was without the filmmaking of John Hughes!  Everything from the Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles to Weird Science and Pretty in Pink, some of the best films that came out of that era were thanks to him.  This new documentary touches on how Hughes worked and why he left the entertainment business. 
Don't You Forget About Me has interviews with all the major players in the 80s Hughes era, including Judd Nelson and Ally Sheedy.  We see the filmmakers journey to find Hughes and interview the man himself about why he left.  I found this one very entertaining and nostalgic.  This is a must-own for anyone into 80s films or Hughes' work in general.
