Movie Info

Turn It Around: The Story of East Bay Punk explores Northern California's pivotal role in evolution of punk rock - the loud, intense and anti-authoritarian philosophy of music and politics that arose in the late 1970s. Early San Francisco Bay Area punk pioneers like Dead Kennedys, Avengers and Flipper as well as the Maximum Rocknroll fanzine helped take the punk underground global.

  • 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.

    Jul 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.

  • 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.

  • Despite its unorganized content, overwhelming runtime and information overload, I couldn't help but be heartened by the sincerity and love put into in this film.
