Fascinating.

This is a well-made, observant documentary, with attitude to spare and plenty of justifiable laughs at the expense of its subjects.

For all the amusingly fatuous remarks heard here -- and Miss Spheeris has a great ear for these -- the overriding dimness of most of the fans and musicians is frightening.

Rather like watching a car wreck on the opposite side of a motorway.

There's so little respect for the music that we never see or hear a number from beginning to end, and we rarely hear any of the musicians speak more than a few seconds at a time.
