Various Artists – Punk’s Not Dead
TAGS:

Susan Dynner‘s affectionate documentary neatly bookends American punk, the DIY ethic of the early 80s (Black Flag, Circle Jerks, Bad Religion) contrasted against the more modern corporate approach of “punk renaissance” bands like The Offspring and Green Day.

From tales of social lepers crashing on fans’ floors to college-educated business brains discussing marketing strategies, it’s a witty examination of how the mainstream ultimately embraces that which it fears.

EXTRAS: 3* Deleted scenes, live performances, featurettes, trailers.
