About halfway through End of the Century: The Story of the Ramones, journalist Legs McNeil asks why the Ramones didn't have big hits. The achievement of the film is that it makes you wonder the same thing and provides an answer.
It does pry much deeper into the band's unexpectedly complex and contradictory personalities -- particularly when it comes to the more-tragic- than-comic feud over a girl between lefty lead singer Joey and defiantly conservative guitarist Johnny Ramone.
1) it's a richly human story about friendship, originality, professionalism and success, and 2) there's hardly been any new music worth a lick in the past 30 years that the Ramones didn't somehow inspire.
