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

The third and final installment of Penelope Spheeris’s DECLINE trilogy takes a look at a group of homeless teenage punks in the ‘90s. These kids are members of the gutter-punk scene in 1997, the better part of two decades after the first film. This time the kids seem hopeless and drained, none believe they will survive 5 years, but there’s also a kind of hope present, and the film has humor and compassion.
