No Future For Me

D.O.A. (1980)
Dir - Lech Kowalski
Guide: Destroy All Movies!!!

This is a pretty sweet doc about punk music, filmed in the late 70s. There are tons of great live performances and chats with people about their thoughts on the newish genre. It mostly follows the Sex Pistols on their US tour (including clips from their Dallas show at the Longhorn Ballroom!) and how Americans feel about them, as well as interviews with those in against the group in Parliament in the UK. Sid and Nancy make a very odd appearance for an interview where they're both so out of it that Sid keeps falling asleep with lit cigarettes in his hand and Nancy takes her shirt off. Also some great performances from Sham 69, Generation X, The Dead Boys and more. A must see for punk fans.
