One of the best of the year.
Watch any YouTube videos of Billie Joe Armstrong, and you'll witness a
modern day punk rock star making out with fans, jumping into the
audience, drinking onstage, and expressing wild antics in front of his
audience. I think he was built for the screen.
His personality shows through, with the high-pitched voice you rarely
hear him speak with, but are so used hearing in song, and expresses a
character on screen that both "depresses and enlightens."
Seeing him on screen, at first, witnessing his tattoos on his arms, and
realizing, "this is really a movie starring Billie Joe Armstrong" you
realize, "how am I watching this..?" -- a stunning movie for fellow
musicians, or anyone who grew up with Dookie, or the songs he got
famous for, like "Brain Stew" and "When I Come Around."
The individual has literally been in the music industry for pretty much
the majority of his life, and he is by far one of the most talented
performers for his audiences anywhere, who always seems to appear
paradoxically "young" -- youthful -- witty -- amusing -- and never
seeming to age beyond his original nineties persona, which gained him
so much fortune today.
He deserves better reviews for this work, and I take great pride in
adding this as a "DVD" to my movie collection, within all truth and
honesty, more than just a little Redbox viewing, or Google Play
showing, because I feel this one ought to be added to any and all
film-makers -- especially indie, or musicians, DVD collections.
As far as the plot, I don't wish to reveal anything, because I feel
this is the kind of movie that speaks for itself. it is highly
enjoyable, and charming, to say the least. Watch it knowing as little
about it as possible, in this reviewers opinion, and you will enjoy it
