Audience Reviews for Monks - The Transatlantic Feedback
Wonderful documentary about a group of American G.I.'s stationed in Germany at the height of the Cold War who start a band unlike anything else, raw and aggressive in a confrontational manner, political at a time where the Beatles were still singing about holding hands. Hopefully this will bring in more people to the genius that was the Monks.
