The third installment of Penelope Spheeris’s documentary series on subversive musical movements, released in 1998, is by far the darkest—it looks into the lives of nihilistic Los Angeles gutter punks in the 90s. These are Spheeris’s most tragic subjects: misunderstood, rejected by society, and often fleeing from abuse, the punks in this chapter of Decline can’t stand living in the world but have at least managed to find one another.

The unvarnished bummer of the bunch, The Decline of Western Civilization III, pulls further back to reveal the legacy of that first punk generation to include a lost second generation. The cultural pendulum swings like a wrecking ball. You thought the disenfranchisement of the Reagan eighties was bad? Try the Clinton nineties!

From the ground-zero reportage of the first Decline, Spheeris has spiraled out to a scene of maximum self-imposed marginality. There were still interesting things going on in punk and its various offshoot idioms in the mid-to-late 90s, but none of them are to be seen here – which isn’t to say that what has been documented isn’t poignant in its way, encapsulating as it does the political naivety and backward-looking obsolescence of US gutter punk.
