1991: The Year Punk Broke

Total score  7.6

Info

1992. 1h39m. Musical documentary directed by David Markey.

Synopsis

Dave Markey's landmark rock doc follows influential art rockers Sonic Youth on a summer 1991 festival tour of Europe, along with supporting acts Dinosaur Jr. and Nirvana -- -- just at the moment the Seattle band was about to launch into the stratosphere, with their LP "Nevermind" ascending the charts and major record labels rushing to sign every band with even a passing resemblance. Electrifying performances on stage are interspersed with backstage interviews, alternately candid and facetious; a representation of the combination of boredom and excitement of a professional rocker.
