End of the Century: The Story of the Ramones (2003)

Jim Fields & Michael Gramaglia direct Dee Dee Ramone, Joey Ramone and Tommy Ramone in this music documentary charting the rise and fall of the NY punk band that sold a billion t-shirts.

Scraps of footage and talking heads are smashed together into a life story that contradicts itself, gets lost in repetitions and doesn’t present the music particularly well. This really struggled to hold my attention.
