Over The Edge Movie Summary

Welcome to the perfect planned community of New Granada, Colorado. Perfect in every way but one…they never planned to give their children anything productive to do. Carl, Richie, and Claude, and his little brother struggle to grow up in New Granada. When not at school, they hang out at the Rec. There they can shoot pool, drink alcohol, and/or buy drugs.

The film begins with Mark Perry and a friend shooting out a car window from a freeway overpass. When they flee the police, it’s Carl and Richie whom Officer Doberman arrests.

Officer Doberman calls Carl’s father, Fred, to get him when the boys refuse to tell him who shot the police car. Fred’s a well meaning and hard working guy, but he doesn’t understand Carl’s struggles.

  1. This gets my vote as the strangest pick by anyone so far, and I’ve listened to every podcast. Even stranger than Enter the Dragon! But it’s still a good film. naked gun is also a weird pick, I would expect that to be on LTMR not here. May I ask what is scheduled for Dec 15?

      1. That’s great about the thin man, thought it may be part of golden age, but this is even better. I remembered you picked enter the dragon. You also picked romancing the stone and a funny thing happened, which I also thought were strange picks. But you also pick films that only serious film critics would probably pick like M, McCabe, and L’Aventura. You are definitely the most unpredictable of the four!
