Kenny and Company

Don Coscarelli wrote and directed this when he was 22 (he'd go on to make Phantasm at the ripe old age of 25). Little-seen but very well-loved by its viewers, it's a plotless series of incidents in the life of an 11-year old boy. There's a thoughtful essay about it over here.

Anyone who grew up in the 70's is really going to dig this. I haven't seen another film that captures childhood of the era so well.

No longer on netflix, this movie is out-of-print on DVD. But the last few copies are still available on amazon for under $10. And Blockbuster online is still renting it.
