"Smithereens" (1982), directed by Susan Seidelman. 90 minutes. No rating. In the spirit of the punk movement that inspired it, this film spews raw spontaneity, stars a mostly non-professional cast and looks like it was made for a few thousand dollars. It focuses on Wren, a hyper, just-out-of-high-school Jersey girl trying to be a part of the New York punk scene, and a band called Smithereens (a name used later by a real-life pop band).

"Moonlighting" (1982), directed by Jerzy Skolimowski. 97 minutes. Rated PG. An unforgettable story of four Polish construction workers sent to London to renovate the foreign getaway of their wealthy boss. It's comical, touching, newsy and political--a heartfelt tale of workingmen's values and Western consumerism.
