Meet "Daddy Dearest" Of The Punk-Rock Generation
Back in their punk-rocker heydays - All of the 8 men interviewed in this "Other F-Word" documentary had publicly embraced anarchy, praised promiscuity, sneered at authority, and scorned conventionality to the max.
And, yet, now, years later - Here they all were being good, little daddies, living in suburban homes that were, literally, as neat-as-a-pin, and trying to convince the viewer that, as responsible fathers, they were absolute saints (who made Ward Cleaver of TV's "Leave It To Beaver" look like a total monster by comparison).
Like - Hello!? WTF is this!!??.... Talk about a hypocritical, forked-tongue contradiction this whole "Daddy Dearest" documentary really was (in the long run).
I found that what all of these bad-boy ex-rebels had to say here mirrored each other so much that I'm convinced that they were all full of bull, insincerely reciting lines from the same, old stale script that had been flippantly penned by a very unimaginative person.
