Storyline

What happens when a generation's ultimate anti-authoritarians -- punk rockers-- become society's ultimate authorities -- dads? With a large chorus of Punk Rock's leading men - Blink-182's Mark Hoppus, Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea, Rise Against's Tim McIlrath - The Other F Word follow, Jim Lindberg, 20-year veteran of skate punk band Pennywise, on his hysterical and moving journey from belting his band's anthem, 'Fuck Authority', to embracing his ultimately pivotal authoritarian role in mid-life, fatherhood. Written by Andrea Blaugrund Nevins

7 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am interested in folks that have demons to wrestle or hit giant forks in the road of life and have to deal or step off. And plus, I love films with an authentic voice, humor, pathos, great characters who I relate to and bittersweet, yet cathartic endings. Add to that, great editing, music and a universal theme, and its a total win win. I liked the ying/yang feel of this doc - a woman at the helm might have helped bring out what was the more noble, more lovable, more honest side of these men - or boy/men, or boys-to-men via the transformation that Fatherhood can have on a tired, tore up, touring punk rocker. Just the image alone of these guys with their little girls in a park or at a birthday party is intriguing - but we get to hear their stories, their evolution and guess what? We care. So thank you, filmmakers, for capturing their stories and the Uberstory which is...parenthood. And identity. And do you need to sacrifice one for the other? Also, awesome to ponder those who I never thought would "age", slamming into the brick wall of mid-life crises.

PS: I live with a guy who (after Frank Zappa died and he couldn't follow him around) followed punk bands like Jesus Lizard and Butthole Surfers and Minor Threat (I went to those concerts and survived). So he came with me to see this film with this kind of "insider" prejudice, thinking it was just going to be about, "Yeah, I had to mellow out." I turned to him at one point in the film and he was wiping tears and swallowing the lump in his throat. So...um....yeah. There ya go.
