Empire Records

Empire Records ★★★

The script is a scatterbrained mess but the characters are genuinely interesting and feel like accurate multidimensional portrayals. Much attention is given to the various women characters to give each one their own deeply personal and emotionally introspective journeys while the men are aloof, arrogant, and in desperate need to own up to their mistakes. Credit to this movie for trying to warn us about what every future mass shooter would look and act like too.
