The Other F Word

A mildly interesting documentary about punk rockers growing up.  It consisted almost entirely of interviews of members of Pennywise, TSOL, Blink-182, US Bombs, Black Flag, Everclear, The Adolescents, and others.  They discuss how they have managed the transition from disgruntled adolescent anarchists to being fathers (that would be the other F word) and the struggles that come with still touring/being foul-mouthed punks and trying to raising your kids with structure, limits and values.  Most of them talk about trying to be different from their own fathers.  The film sheds no light on parenthood or growing up or the punk movement; the struggles these guys have are exactly the ones you think they would have and they handle them, to varying degrees, the way all parents do.  If you were into the punk movement and know most of the names listed above, I’d see the film.  Otherwise, I wouldn’t.
