I think that for many of us who grew up in the 80’s there is a sort of mental trauma that endures to this day for having seen the Never Ending Story. Not that there was anything violent or explicit in the film, it was just so damn boring! I first saw this film sometime around the fifth grade, in class, and the whole time I couldn’t believe the teacher choose this for us to watch when he could have just as easily picked Star Wars, Superman, or A Clockwork Orange. You know, something a little easier on a young mind. But, as damaging as it was to my young mind check out what The Never Ending Story did to these two head cases as they discuss it with their therapist.
