Critic Reviews for The Decline of Western Civilization - Part III
A culmination of her achievement in the trilogy, which chronicles a scene with visceral skill, and often with an anthropologist's detachment. Yet you can only detach for so long.
If 'Kids' was a little too uplifting for your taste, then this is the documentary for you.
There's nothing funny at all in the relentless final hour of Decline of Western Civilization III, just grim episodes in the lives of abandoned children.
Audience Reviews for The Decline of Western Civilization - Part III
By far the most personal and emotionally resonant of the trilogy, and focuses more on the day-to-day existence of the fans who live and breathe the nihilistic ethos of the musicians they love. Thank God too because I don't give two shits about any of these bands. A total fucking downer in the end.
Like an update of the first DWC, but focused more on the youth gutterpunks, it's sad sight but it's real and they live it.
I remember seeing this movie with some fair-weather friends I used to know when I was a teenager. I dug it. I could relate to a lot of the youth suffering from living on the street, because those were a lot of the people that I hung out with and sympathized with when I was 17-19 years old. We went with a couple of guys that trekked all the way down to the Ken to see that movie from L. A. or wherever because they had a scene they pointed out to us where they were walking around in the background. That was kind of fun. Anyway one of the girls I went with was a girl I had a crush on, but then she went out with one of the gutterpunks that came with us just to tick off her dad. (Though for obvious reasons they only went out for a week.) It made me really angry back then but looking back on it about 10-15 years in the future I think the context I remember this movie in was amusing and adorable. ;) Cheesy, yeah, but that's why this is one of my fave films.
