The Decline of Western Civilization Part II: The Metal Years Disutradarai oleh Penelope Spheeris
In between the unforgettably ridiculous interviews—Ozzy Osborne discussing the mundanity of sobriety while cooking breakfast, Steven Tyler bragging about putting millions of dollars up his nose, Chris Holmes of W.A.S.P. chugging messily from a bottle of vodka in his pool while his mom looks on—we get to meet the fans and scene regulars, who cake on makeup, tease their hair into towering styles, and quit their jobs because they’re so sure their dreams of rock stardom will come true.

Spheeris stays true in her approach, which calmly defies even the most reactionary hate-watcher not to be wooed. Funny and riveting, Part II gets its power from an notion so generous that it does not even compute for die-hard fans: that punk bands and hair bands have common ground in the authority of the unselfconscious.

Though it is more recent than its predecessor, Decline II feels in some respects more distant, like a dispatch from another universe… Spheeris is a blunt, to-the-point interlocutor. The prompts aren’t much, but her brusque, humourous manner invariably gets people talking, and that’s the crucial thing.
