Movie Info

As the first multi-platinum-selling, all-female band to play their own instruments, write their own songs and soar to No. 1 on the album charts, the Go-Go's are the most successful female rock band of all time. Rooted in the LA punk scene, the Go-Go's didn't PLAY the part of bad girls; they were genuine punk rockers. With full access to the Go-Go's, both past and present, this candid archive-rich documentary from director Alison Ellwood (American Jihad, History of the Eagles) assesses the group's place in music history and examines the personalities and dynamics behind their rise, fall and numerous reincarnations. Until this definitive documentary, there has never been a serious appraisal of and showcase for the Go-Go's' talents or achievements -- as musicians, ground-breakers, but even more so, as survivors.

  • Backed by a wealth of video footage, archival photographs and gig posters, Ellwood captures the determination with which the band thrust itself forward, neither glossing over nor digging too deep into the hint of ruthlessness with which early members...

  • The Go-Go's documentary has, well, yes ... the beat

    February 21, 2020 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…
  • The combination of the music, personalities, and a straightforward narrative brings order to the chaos, and the film becomes a rapturous crowd-pleaser.
