Critic Reviews for Hated: G.G. Allin & the Murder Junkies
Filmmaker Todd Phillips deserves credit for having the stomach to have spent enough time with Allin to make this documentary.
Just not good.
This isn't for the faint-hearted but is an insight into the often violent underbelly of the American punk scene.
Audience Reviews for Hated: G.G. Allin & the Murder Junkies
GG Allin was the last true rock star to ever live and this documentary documenting his final year is the proof. Todd Phillips couldn't have done him more justice just showing us what kind of maniac he truly was and what he could have been capable of in his later years if not tragically taken on that final night after his last show. GG Allin may fade from our memories as time goes on but he will never be forgotten. R.I.P. Jesus Christ Allin.
Love him or hate him, GG Allin was the most dangerous man in Rock n Roll for a good long while. Ever feel like Rock n roll is too sanitized and safe now (it really is!) then check out this documentary. Also recomendable to fans of extreme cinema in general. Features GG defecating, throwing his shit at people, eating/rolling iaround in his shit, drinking a ladies urine, assault (sexual and otherwise) etc. Also pleanty of good interview footage. One of the few places you can see a calmer more lucid GG explain his position and worldview (even in these moments, he was still a mean son of a bitch.).GG wasn't the greatest singer out there but I have always considered this punk rock performance art. When GG died he left a void in rock n roll that will probably never be filled again (for better or worse), but in my opinion, RnR is supposed to have a healthy amount of unpredictability and danger to it. GG embodied both in spades, who do we have striking fear in the heart of the audience now? Marilyn Manson? Eminem? ??? pshhh. Fuck those try hard pretenders, this is where it's at.
Fascinating and disturbing doc on G.G Allin, lead singer of the murder junkies. It's like watching a train wreck. G.G should have been locked up instead of fronting a band. If he wasn't performing, he would have been in jail.
