Director Penelope Spheeris
USA, 1983, 35mm, 94 min., Color

-------------------------------------------------------

A masterpiece of not only punk cinema,but of the cinema of disaffected and alienated youth everywhere. Spheeris uses non-actors to tell the story of a band of teenage punks who carve out their own community with their own values as they squat in an abandoned suburban house. This is no utopia, they have internal problems, but their real problem is the adults who stalk them and eventually bring about a conflict that forces everyone to confront themselves and measure their commitment to their way of life. Both authors of “Destroy All Movies: The Complete Guide To Punks On Film” agree that this is the best punk film ever made and we’re not arguing.
