The Last Pogo Jumps Again (2013)

London had the Sex Pistols, New York had the Ramones, but Toronto had a punk movement all its own. In the end, the Toronto landscape by the late 70s was forever changed with the infusion of the DIY/Punk/Alternative culture(s) movement.

Not just one of the best rockumentaries...
13 November 2013 | by celticeilidhSee all my reviews

This is not just one of the best doc(rock)umentaries I have ever seen, it's up in my Top 100 films, period. It's really the story of how Toronto went from being a three-horse town to mega-city status, thanks to the influence this counter-culture scene. Like any good documentary, you go into it based on a smattering of information -- enough to catch your interest -- and come out better informed. In this case you don't have to know the bands or the people in the film to enjoy it, it's funny, informative & most of all truly entertaining. Don't let the running length put you off, I've seen it twice in theatres & can't wait for the DVD.
