Movie Info

In this hourlong documentary, culled primarily from a 1991 interview with filmmaker Lech Kowalski, the late punk pioneer Dee Dee Ramone discusses his storied career - both as a musician and as an on-again, off-again drug addict. Taking its title from the Ramones anthem "Chinese Rocks," the film is mostly a one-person recollection, but includes many archival clips and concert footage. Director Kowalski previously profiled the late-'70s punk scene with his 1981 release D.O.A.more

Critic Reviews for Hey is Dee Dee Home

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (5)

It's a starkly passionate memoir of drugs and rock 'n' roll (sex seemed to be mostly an inconvenience) that's delivered with articulate poignancy by one who makes no apologies but has many regrets.

Seattle Times
Top Critic

As extreme as his behavior and music often were, Mr. Ramone also seemed to be a sympathetic and reasonably self-aware person, at least as he is captured here in a sobered-up, 1991 interview.

New York Times
Top Critic

Essentially an hour-long monologue, but this talking head is so engaging that you can't blame director Lech Kowalski's camera for not wanting to stray from the late Dee Dee Ramone's party-ravaged face.

Top Critic

[Ramone] exudes his own brand of obnoxious charm, the kind that can only be possessed, never imitated.

The film's appeal is limited to serious fans of the band and the New York punk scene.
