Lightning in a bottle. A who’s-who of the L.A. punk scene, with Fear, X, Circle Jerks, Germs, Black Flag and others performing and talking shit. Spheeris asks great, direct questions behind the camera and allows the audience to cast whatever judgment they like over what gets said. Sometimes what gets said is funny and illuminating, and sometimes what gets said is revolting beyond belief. Closing set by Fear is the biggest highlight among many.
Not sure the world really needs autisploitation movies, but the premise of a book-cooking account who doubles as a killer with training in Indonesian martial arts.... well, folks, I'm only human. I can't resist that. Never better than when he's accounting, though, which is not what you'd expect.
