Destroy All Movies!!! The Complete Guide to Punks on Film

Zack Carlson, Bryan Connolly (eds)

(Fantagraphics)

“This book celebrates great accomplishments, terrible insults, and the people responsible for both,” writes editor Zach Carlson in his introduction. Destroy All Movies!!! is as frantic and demented as the films it rejoices in.  Included is every movie to ever feature a punk rocker, from serious documentaries that treat their subjects with respect, to the delirious exploitation films that portray punks as marauding gangs of videogame obsessed hoodlums. Every time you pick up this book you’ll find something new and exciting. 

Also included are extensive interviews with the writers, directors, and musicians who made these films happen. This is a must for any film fan with an affinity for the trashy and insane.
