So Wikipedia, which should know, says that Quadrophenia (the movie) was once ranked as the 35th best British film of all time. So it's possible that it doesn't suck a great deal, or maybe not at all. Set in '64, Quadrophenia follows the story of young Jimmy Cooper, an amphetamine-addled, scooter-riding Mod who runs afoul of a gang of motorcycle-riding Rockers in the seaside town of Brighton. Teen angst, steamy alley romance and fines of 50 quid ensue. A despondent Jimmy then wisely decides that life on a Lambretta-even one with a lot of rear view mirrors-isn't really worth living, and appears to ride tragically off the cliff (on a different scooter) at Beachy Head. Roll credits.
