Fugazi, the most brilliant medley of musicians...
7 July 2001 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

Excellent cinematography is displayed in the film-Cohen utilizes various types of film, from super 8 to 16mm. Fugazi, being the greatest medley of musicians to emerge from the DC area, is depicted on screen in an 115 minute documentary. The video includes really neat live footage, as well as some bonus material. What's not to enjoy?
