All Critics (21) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (19) | Rotten (2)

  • Even the title sounds like a hardheaded comeback to a proclamation nobody made.

    October 19, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Susan Dynner's documentary about the past 30 years of punk music doesn't exactly break any new ground. But it does offer an entertaining overview that is leavened with humorous philosophical digressions.

    August 10, 2007
  • Poor punk. Such a bundle of complexes, most of them encapsulated in the needlessly defensive title of Susan Dynner's documentary Punk's Not Dead.

    July 27, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • The movie covers a lot of time and territory, and some of its questions are great ones. (The biggest, for true punks: Is getting a big record deal a sign of ultimate success, or final defeat?)

    July 27, 2007 | Rating: 3/4
  • About as in-your-face and raggedy as its subject, Dynner's film is really less of a history than a psychological profile, rooting around for the meat of what makes punk so resilient, cross-generational and communal.

  • Play this movie loud. Really loud.
