A well-intentioned but baggy, unfocused and unsatisfying documentary about punk legends the Slits, which feels like an assemblage of footage that could have been shaped in a clearer and more interesting way.
Driven by its own punk-aesthetic - bold intertitles, archive celluloid, and so on - Badgley's film is a celebration of the band and their achievements.
Lovingly done and holds your attention the whole way through.
Now, The Slits' story is properly documented for the future generations to come.
It's tight and gripping, relating a story that's vital yet underheard.
The background music frequently drowns out contributors' voices, while precious early footage is overlayed by annoyingly distracting typography, but if you can forgive these blemishes, this is still the singular story of a genuinely unique band.
Badgley's scrappy, heartfelt portrait mirrors his subject's DIY aesthetic with a true fanatic's intensity.
There are some engaging talking heads... But although the Slits may well have set "a new paradigm for females", hearing about it eventually becomes as boring as the Pistols and the Clash banging on about how empowering punk was.
The end result feels a bit broken-backed.
Tribute finally paid to our nasty foremothers.
