Middle of the road in almost every way, but when you live a life as rich as Edward Abbey, you’re gonna get a few nuggets sifted from the desolate ground. Of particular interest was hearing Abbey and his co-conspirators dance around admission of committing the crimes we all know they did. The term “statute of limitations” was used several times but as specific as they get to culpability is to acknowledge “field research” for Abbey’s books. Also the man Abbey based Hayduke on was exactly like I imagined him.
I hate GG Allin. I hate his music and I hate punks that act like him or think he was anything more than an idiot who wanted attention. I may lose some punx points for this, but fuck it. This doc was very good at showing how ridiculous he was and doesn't idolize him the way that I expected. Still it's not for everyone as GG repeatedly shits on stage, mutilates himself and attacks his audience (who are equally fucked in the head).
