Down 'n dirty look at the Hell's Angels
18 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Having seen at least 50 biker movies in my life, I find it encouraging that the real Hell's Angels seem uglier, fatter, hairier, drunker and more violent than their movie counterparts. Well, maybe not more violent, the documentary kind of skirts around that part. But drunker, fatter and hairier for sure! The focus switches between a New York City chapter and random California ones frequently, which is a little confusing, but otherwise it's a real interesting first hand look at the Angels at play (they're constantly partying) and talking about their way of life, interspersed with bits on the club's history and the unsuccessful racketeering charges the federal government tried to pin on them several times in the late 70s. Also of note is footage of Hell's Angels-sponsored performances by The Jerry Garcia Band, Bo Diddley, Elephant's Memory, Willie Nelson and lesser-knowns. Well worth the watch if you're interested in the Angels and can track this down.
