Destroy All Movies!!! Punks on Film...
There are a gajillion reviews, written mostly by co-editors Carlson and Connolly, and I had the opportunity to write some up too, including reviews for a few of my favorite films such as Times Square, Cronenberg's The Fly, and Batman Returns. The other movies I wrote about are: 200 Cigarettes, The Commitments, Godard's Detective, The Mask, Shady, Tokyo Pop, and Trainspotting.
The book is a gorgeous and hefty tome that not only provides an extensive and almost exhaustive record of punk appearances in world cinema, but is a testament to what depths Connolly, Carlson, and fellow contributors dove to mine this collection for presentation in one well-illustrated and super entertaining publication.
Available from publishers, Fantagraphics Books (in Seattle), Amazon, and hopefully a bookstore or library near you...
