Movie Info

Long before Green Day and Blink 182 inflicted punk-rock's puncture wound on the map of mainstream music, the Descendents were in a garage concocting the perfect mix of pop, angst, love, and coffee. FILMAGE: THE STORY OF DESCENDENTS / ALL follows band leader/drummer/square-peg Bill Stevenson and his "caffeinated retardedness" as he pushes his rotating door of bandmates to "achieve ALL," his philosophy of going for greatness at all costs. Stevenson is a force to be reckoned with, proving that not even a grapefruit-sized brain tumor can keep him down. Interviews with the band, along with Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters), Mike Watt (Minutemen), Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion) and many more reveal the story of a band--if not THE band--responsible for pop-punk as you know it.

Critic Reviews for Filmage: The Story of Descendents/All

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (4)

Filmage offers an entertaining history lesson about how the alt-rock geeks did not quite inherit the earth.

Drummer and songwriter Bill Stevenson ... [is] as energetic and emotional in the interview segments as he is in archival performance footage.

October 6, 2014 | Full Review…

Behind every pop-punk success story is a debt to the original L.A. bands chronicled in this ingratiating docu.

September 26, 2014 | Full Review…

Exhilarating and curiously moving ...

September 25, 2014 | Full Review…

Into this obsessive history, however, co-directors Deedle Lacour and Matt Riggle have smuggled a human-interest story.
