Interesting and fun movie
6 April 2010 | by rob-2364See all my reviews

Really interesting documentary on the Chinese punk music scene. I am not sure what I had expected. It never had occurred to me that such a thing existed until I saw this movie. The music was great and surprisingly original. A couple of these bands I think would have appeal outside of China. I can't wait until that happens. Then I can say 'oh yeah I saw those guys in a documentary like 10 years ago'. The movie was funny, well edited, and full of characters from the bands and punk scene. I got a real feeling for what it would be like at the club D-22. What's more punk rock than the danger of going to jail for your music?
