I hope you know that this will go down on your...

Coming to DVD this February

If you read the comments on Permament Record over at the Backlot, you'll get an idea of the effect it had on people, including those that identified with Chris, and those who came very close to making David's choice as well.

I loved Keanu's performance in this. I think it was one of his best in his early years, so I'm very happy that it will be released on DVD this February.
Thanks to r.j.girl for the info.

I totally agree, krix, that this is one of his best. It really showcases all aspects of him: his fun goofiness in the beginning and then into the depths as he tries to deal with his loss. And that emotional scene with his friend's Dad...yowsers!!! Great movie! Needless to say, I've already pre-ordered.

i've got the tape. i agree, this is one of keanu's finest early performances. i hope they put some "goodies" on the dvd, but i guess i shouldn't count on it.

As a suicide survivor this film had a huge impact on me & was the beginning of my appreciation for Keanu. Watching Chris move through the stages of his grief opened my eyes to what I was doing & made me realize that life was for the living.

On a happier note....Merry Christmas to you krix...wish I could visit here more, but the job just won't allow for now.

Merry Christmas to all of you who appreciate Keanu & who frequent this lovely site!

i heart Chris (everytime i hear him say to MG, "you exude sex" i just want to die!). i've recommended this movie to my counselor education students as a way to learn about the processes of dealing with suicide.

oh, and krix, i love your reference to the Violent Femmes, as well... rock on!

I have never seen Permanent Record entirely. It was on tv awhile back, but I didn't see it all. Thank you for the heads up that it's coming out on DVD. I've been wanting to buy this film. Now I'll just wait until February.
