Mr. Hughes Goes to Town


As you may have noticed, John Hughes is in the midst of his very own posthumous cultural moment, which means gushing remembrances, critical reconsiderations and, best of all, dance remixes. Luckily, his fans have good taste.

Eclectic Method—the same folks who brought you the Tarantino mixtape—have turned their attention to the auteur of 80s angst, and the result is five minutes of iconic clips chopped and pulverized into a danceable nostalgia salad. It focusses mostly on The Breakfast Club and Ferris Bueller’s Day Off (yes, including “Twist and Shout”), but that leaves them with enough whistles, screams and off-key clarinet for a full-scale multimedia symphony.
