  • ejonline's rating of the film D.O.A.

    I remember thinking when I saw this soon after it came out that the punk scene it depicted seemed to take place a million years ago, even though it was only a matter of a few years. It seemed like a lost world. Thinking back, this movie reminds me that the kind of "punk" that has been endlessly fetishized was really only in flower for a very short period of time before it fell into the stasis it was a reaction to.
