short attention span theater

Hadn't listened to the Ramones in 10 years, but caught this on Trio -- definitely made for Ramones fetishists. To call Ramones Raw "well-edited" is awfully generous ... aside from the endearing sequence dealing with Joey's death, it's a formless cut-and-splice collage. Home video footage was given a sham MTV-treatment; scenes seem to average about five seconds each. I wished they'd let more clips ride for a while, get some context for the scenes (exception -- the many mob scenes where they're trying to ditch manic fans last forever). Raw seems stingy with the performances too -- twenty-five years of touring and we see songs from only about five concerts? But if this is what Marky wanted to make, so be it -- more power to him. You definitely get to cozy up to the band.
