Quotes

James Vance: I come to visit this place every so often and I talk to Ray - like a dead person - I don't expect an answer and I do tell him what's on my heart, still. I would like to call certain people murderers. I feel that they murdered Ray. I just wish it never happened.

A brilliant doc on a tragic and absurd case in which no one comes out looking very good...
19 January 1999 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This documentary provides a chilling post mortem on the tragic case of two Reno, Nevada teens who decided to shoot themselves in the head with a shotgun rather than go on living, and the ensuing civil court case staged to place the blame on the heavy metal combo Judas Priest. It is a heartbreaking case, but a fascinating film. It is a great look back at mid-1980's american culture, and should be compared to the fictional "Gummo." The question explored by both the court case and the film is whether or not the boys shot themselves because of the music or because of the heartless, spineless and absolutely mindless "society" they were forced to grow up in. The film includes fantastic interview footage with both the surviving boy, the members of Judas Priest, and assorted family members and other characters who revolve around the case. I got the feeling that the film maker did a great job of trying to be as objective as possible - and no one comes out looking all that good...
