Description

THE DECLINE OF WESTERN CIVILIZATION PART II: THE METAL YEARS – APRIL 3
presented by John Wilson

A lightning-in-a-bottle document from arguably New Orleans’ GREATEST native filmmaker Penelope Spheeris, The Decline of Western Civilization trilogy is a legendary cinematic interpretation of the punk phenomenon. Spheeris caught something essential about the scene, specifically the degree to which it revolved around music by and for damaged individuals, people practically radiating with their hurt, for whom this music was nothing less than a lifeline. Part II: The Metal Years takes us from Ozzy, to Alice Cooper, to Motorhead, to Megadeth — metalhead party animals beyond irony in their loutishness, and utterly unforgettable in their humanity.
