Reality Bites is my guilty little secret of favouritest movies. I watch it when I feel down or sort of lost in those existential 'what am I doing with my life" kind of ways. I don't know if it's also my secret love for 90's Ethan Hawke's smart alecky quips and grunge-y plaid shirts or the general feeling of nostalgia for the 90s that this movie represents for me, but I've probably seen it about 20 times. In high school (and after) my friends and I would quote it mercilessly, sing along to the rather excellent soundtrack (My Sharona by the Knack, and U2 back when they were still good) and generally identify with those Gen X type feelings of wanting to figure out who you are, find meaning and purpose after university is over, as well as find someone to love. It's not a cinematic masterpiece by any means, just a film that speaks to a certain time in my life that I enjoy, but is definitely worth a watch.
