    We're up to 15 so we need 17 more.

    I seconded City of God and Lucas.

    I nominated Blackboard Jungle, Dazed and Confused, If..., and The Man in the Moon.

    Four more noms and seconds for everyone who's participated thus far. [​IMG]

    I'll 2nd the Karate Kid, I thought about nominating it, but I wasn't really sure it had enough angst

    Arman, I'm pretty sure the Requiem for a Dream crew are not teens...ditto Less Than Zero though it has been quite a while since I've seen it

    Not sure what all would count, so just one nom:

    The Rules of Attraction


    I second:

    Heathers
    Saved!
    Battle Royale
    Buffy the Vampire Slayer

    Note that I didn't second my favorite film of all time, Requiem, because I'm pretty sure they're not teens.
