I wanna keep this simple.
This is one of the best Canadian films ever made, one of the best rock movies ever made, one of the best fake documentaries ever made, and has Quentin Tarantino's stamp of approval. There are so many scenes I reference or steal to this day, in particular: "Where's Billy?". This movie gives Hugh Dillon an eternal free pass, and makes me excited whenever I see Callum Keith Rennie's name associated with any project, usually as a minor character. (most famously as one of the recurring Cylons in Battlestar Galactica)
Valuable information for fans ahead:
The newly released blu-ray, unlike the Special Edition DVD which has been out for many years, is finally widescreen 1.85:1, and contains the experimental and arty anti-sequel Hard Core Logo 2
