Richard Hell, one of the most important and influential figures in the late-'70s New York punk rock scene, stars in this gritty look at the underground art and music community, directed by German filmmaker Ulli Lommel. Billy (Hell) is an up-and-coming musician and poet who meets Nada (Carole Bouquet), a journalist from Europe who has come to New York to do a story on him. Billy and Nada soon fall into a troubled relationship, and Billy has to choose between his career and his feelings for Nada. Andy Warhol appears as himself (being interviewed by Nada); Richard Hell plays three songs with his band The Voidoids, shot live at the legendary club CBGB's. ~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide

For hard core fanatics ONLY! by sfbabe January 26, 2004 - 10:23 PM PST
ericom9 is right. These are just slips of unusable film that were left over from some awesome performances. It's really too bad. If the original sound could have been looped in, it would make this a bearable movie to sit through. As it is - it's a yawner.

This is a documentary? More like bad home movies...I realize this is punk rock DIY, but c'mon! The "Blank Generation" is all footage of bands at CBGBs (shot on 8mm w/ no sound..."live music" was obviously dubbed in)..."Dancing Barefoot" is a masturbatory excercise for the director (Ivan Kral) who interviews old New York scenesters about how cool he himself was back in the 70s. Wank wank. Don't waste your time with this "The Filth and the Fury" instead.
