Variety - Dennis Harvey
Corbett Redford’s film channels and sustains the energy of restless youth while communicating the distinctive qualities of a community that carried collectivist 1960s ideals into a new generation, even as it rejected any vestige of their hippie parents’ music.
Movie Nation - Roger Moore
Director Corbett Redford — a longtime member of that scene, so don’t take his name at face value — tracked down generations of Bay Area punks and tells as complete a story of the music, ethos, lifestyle and politics of this movement as anyone could want.
63 - Glenn Kenny
You don’t have to be a Green Day fan to find this movie interesting, but you’ll definitely be more inherently invested in it if you are.
The New York Times - Monica Castillo
While zine-style animated sequences and VHS taped interviews enliven the pace, the documentary is burdened by too much minutiae. Not every scar earned at a concert deserves to be immortalized in a documentary.
