Stay Gold – The Outsiders

a5The Outsiders is a 30+ year-old movie, there isn’t a lot of value in reviewing the story, directing, acting, etc. It’s about the rites of passage from adolescence to adulthood. Some people will like it, some won’t, and fact this movie never been shown in Indonesia. I saw it for first time in early 90s after found Stevie Wonder singing a ballad he wrote for this 1983 cult movie, Stay Gold then I’ve got hooked. How can I missed a group of cast such as Rob Lowe, Matt Dillon, Ralph Macchio, Diane Lane, Tom Cruise, Thomas Howell, Emilio Estevez, Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen, Leif Garrett, they spark the Brat Pack genre of the 80s and directed by Ford Coppola. The Outsiders .. that will Stay Gold (nDy)

Pada awal 80an, serombongan aktor muda tak dikenal pernah mendukung sebuah film dari kisah novel. Tentang pergaulan klise para remaja yg tumbuh dewasa, disutradarai Francis Coppola. Film ini agaknya luput masuk ke bioskop Indonesia dan kurang pamor, meski nyanyian Stevie Wonder pernah hadir di sejumlah kaset bajakan. Ilustrasi film berjudul Stay Gold diciptakan oleh ayah Francis, Carmine Coppola sbg penutup layar. The Outsiders dianggap sinema klasik Amerika dgn anggaran minim serta gaji murah para aktor2nya. Yakni Rob Lowe, Matt Dillon, Ralph Macchio, Diane Lane, Tom Cruise, Thomas Howell, Emilio Estevez, Patrick Swayze, Leif Garrett dan Charlie Sheen, kelak mereka digelar Brad Pack. Reputasi yg rada mustahil bagi video ini lolos klaim yutub agar dapat monetized, kecuali hasil jam terbang tinggi. Emas tetaplah Emas. (nDy)
