Filmmaker Todd Phillips deserves credit for having the stomach to have spent enough time with Allin to make this documentary.
Every bit as amazing as it sounds.
Just not good.
You can enjoy the lowbrow apocalypse as surreal theater.
This isn't for the faint-hearted but is an insight into the often violent underbelly of the American punk scene.
G.G. Allin ends up coming across as a random explosion of useless spectacle -- despite his unfocused rants against "the system," he's a rebel showman first and a subversive second.
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.
Offensive, stomach turning and untalented little G. G. Allen tries his best to be the most hated punk singer of all time. I think he succeeds. Hats off to Todd Phillips who follows this lunatic around with a camera (something I'm sure Allin loved). Still, a fascinating look into someone living a truly alternative lifestyle.
