THIS IS ROCK!
Fringe World Film Program
Dir: Penelope Spheeris
Part One of Penelope (Wayne's World) Spheeris' brilliant trilogy is a fantastic look at the LA punk scene of the late 70s. Very different to their counterparts in the UK, there's a whole different feel - this picture being an excellent companion piece to Lech Kowalski's D.O.A.
In the making of this picture, Spheeris threw herself head-long into the scene and as a result captures moments few filmmakers (or musicians!) could possibly dream of. The resulting picture is about as authentic as you can get - one of the reasons this series has become so famous (and newly restored by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences).
It's wall-to-wall music with multiple tracks from X, Black Flag, Germs, Alice Bag Band, Fear, Catholic Discipline and Circle Jerks.
It's a most excellent film and a most excellent series.
