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.
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.
Despite the grubbiness of the scene, the film has a rosy nostalgia that is an inevitable by-product of middle-aged people looking back at their hilariously awesome weirdo salad days.
The film's real triumph is that it tells a cohesive story out of so many jagged parts, and does it with an energy that was reflective of that special moment in time.
If there were a more thorough account of second-wave punk than Corbett Redford's documentary Turn it Around: The Story of East Bay Punk, would you even be able to sit through it?
Turn It Around: The Story of East Bay Punk is stimulating enough to appeal to non-punk rock fans as well. Definitely give it a watch.
It is also significant to note that it places a deserved recurring spotlight onto the scene's women and LGBTQ punk artists, as well as the inclusive attitudes of those who found themselves building a flourishing punk scene...
Turn It Around is a nostalgia piece for those who lived it, a film for the fans to enjoy and a tribute to the man who set it all in motion.
