Critic Reviews for The Damned: Don't You Wish That We Were Dead

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (3) | Fresh (12)

  • Director Wes Orshoski, who previously co-directed a laudatory 2010 profile of Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister, builds a solid case for the band's historic importance in this funny, fast-moving, fan-friendly documentary.

  • The U.K.'s oldest extant punk band gets a suitably entertaining, fractious documentary tribute.

  • Wes Orshoski's punkumentary The Damned: Don't You Wish That We Were Dead makes a good stab (key Damned word) at imposing a linear narrative, but their story is just too messed up.

    November 9, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • Finally there exists a beautiful top-to-bottom documentary about the incendiary rock 'n' roll band that recorded the first Punk single ("New Rose") in 1976, and went on to keep reinventing themselves five decades over.

    June 2, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • There are a lot of great stories in here, the fruit of long years of partying hard, and they ensure that the film is entertaining, but they also allow it to skim over other subjects.

    May 26, 2017 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • People who don't even care about the music will likely find [it] compelling.
