All Critics (18) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (15) | Rotten (3)

  • Has value to all connoisseurs of punk culture, who will recognize the trials faced by a community attempting to put high-minded values into action.

  • You don't have to be a Green Day fan to find this movie interesting, but you'll definitely be more inherently invested in it if you are.

    July 28, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • While zine-style animated sequences and VHS taped interviews enliven the pace, the documentary is burdened by too much minutiae. Not every scar earned at a concert deserves to be immortalized in a documentary.

    July 27, 2017 | Full Review…
  • Channels and sustains the energy of restless youth while communicating the distinctive qualities of a community that carried collectivist 1960s ideals into a new generation, even as it rejected any vestige of their hippie parents' music.

  • If you were there with them, in the clubs, you might have a good time with this movie. But for everyone else, this is a party you can skip.

    May 31, 2017 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • A love letter, a time capsule that tells a story not often told, and might not be otherwise, that funnels the punk energy and urgency.
