Did You Know?


Rob Tyner: I was watching TV the other night, and they had these guys from Indonesia, and
[the anthropologists]
Rob Tyner: said "You guys have a lot of parties and stuff; stay up all night and chew drugs, and dance on logs, and walk in the fire and do all this stuff, you know". And like, the guys said "Of course we have to have decent festivals! We do this so that our souls will be happy; so that our souls dont get mad at us, fly away to the gods and we'll die"

not just a great documentary
11 December 2004 | by See all my reviews

This is one of my 10 favorite films of all time. In the "truth is stranger than fiction" vein, this documentary was more like a narrated movie for me. The MC5 was your stereotypical 60's band that imploded due to various abuses. The stories range from hysterical to tragic. The Greek tragedy continues, as apparently the filmmaker and wayne kramer are at odds over rights to the film. The public is being denied a 4 star DVD with hours of deleted footage from some rock 'n roll greats giving testimonials on the MC5's influence. It amazes me that this movie got no fanfare at the academy awards for best documentary - proving what a sham the academy is. For classic rock fans and punk fans, this is a must see - if the DVD ever sees the light of day.
