Review: AMERICAN GRAFFITI

AMERICAN GRAFFITI, a teen coming of age drama set in 1962, is certainly not what we would expect from George Lucas, who wrote, produced, and directed sci-fi and action movies such as STAR WARS (to stare the obvious), RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK, THX 1138, LABYRINTH, and HOWARD THE DUCK. On the other hand, it is surprisingly good and entertaining, with an ongoing soundtrack of hits from the late ’50s and early ’60s.
