Rotten: A simplistic fairy tale, directed by Lyne in a trashy, superficially glitzy style, with pretense to realism in its on-location shooting and a woman who works as a welder, and the kind of postmodernism that's mostly evident in the heroine's name, Alex.

Take your passion... And make it happen! Good movie! Flashdance is one of those must see movies if you wanna see the important films of the 80's. I just wanted to see what this movie was about since it's such a huge part of film culture. Jennifer Beals actually did a great job as Alex, she was absolutely beautiful and made the character very likable. While this film did not live up to my expectations, it still was a good film. It has an awesome sound track and really is a lot of fun to dance too. If you love the 80's movies and music you gotta see this one! Alex Owens is a female dynamo: steel worker by day, exotic dancer by night. Her dream is to get into a real dance company, though, and with encouragement from her boss/boyfriend, she may get her chance. The city of Pittsburgh co-stars. What a feeling!

Such a well known 80's film and yet this is my first viewing! Of course the iconic soundtrack is instantly recognisable, as are some of the dance moves and there is some kind of back story with edging it's way through, but true enough it is corny and tacky like many 80's films, yet something drives me to watch them.
