Realistic View of Punk Rock
10 March 2019 | by beorhhouseSee all my reviews

One reviewer suggests that the film is about "heavy metal teens." I stopped reading after that because the reviewer completely discredits himself. This is a film about, and for, Punk Rockers of all ages, whether Punk music is listened to by them or whether houses are destroyed by them. Punk is a reaction against the commonly told lies concerning America and other Western countries. Actually, all countries that lie to their people (consider Pussy Riot from Russia). Punk is an attitude, but even more than that, an ideology of freedom and seeking for, and finding, the truth. And not a relative truth either, but the Truth that sets you free. This is a good film, and comparable to the other one based on actual events, Bomb City--which also takes place in Texas.
