Decline of the Western Civilization Trilogy

6 Mar

A decade after the Metal Years, director Peneope Spheeris sets out again to take the temperature of the underground music scene of her city. With the excess of the 1980s well and truly gone, the director found a new wave of (gutter) punks, escaping bad homes and finding themselves roaming the L.A. streets.

Screens in trilogy with The Decline of the Western Civilization Part I and Part II.

No Longer Available.
  • Focussing on a generation of kids who weren’t even born when the first wave of punk swept through the city, Spheeris captures a musical scene with a kindred spirit of defiance and energy.

    “Directed by Spheeris with a winning mixture of empathy, concern, and bemusement, Decline III is a funny, insightful work that's every bit as satisfying as its legendary predecessors.” AV Club
