The Decline of Western Civilization
The Los Angeles punk music scene circa 1980 is the focus of this film. With Alice Bag Band, Black Flag, Catholic Discipline, Circle Jerks, Fear, Germs, and X.
Before Penelope Spheeris veered off into dopey comedies based on television shows, she made this brilliant documentary of L.A. punk. This is what lightning captured in a bottle looks like.
If you like hardcore punk rock from the 70s and 80s, this movie is for you. It's a documentary on the music and the lifestyle embodied by punk rockers back in 1981, from the mouths of the rockers themselves.
Awesome documentary. Contains some of the best Black Flag footage ever.
