Born to Lose : The Last Rock and Roll Movie is a 1999 American documentary film by director Lech Kowalski, starring Willy DeVille, Wayne Kramer, and Dee Dee Ramone, among others, as themselves. For fans of guitar hero Johnny Thunders, Born to Lose : The Last Rock and Roll Movie offers a valuable, if incomplete, look into his life. Including taped concert performances of the New York Dolls, Thunders's first major band, as well as the later Heartbreakers, the film is full of rockin' music and astounding performances. Interviews with Thunders's friends, family, and bandmates round out the musical performances and chronological narration, providing a true glimpse into the man and his life through a series of touching stories and reflections. Though some interviews are semi-coherent at best, even that reveals aspects of Thunders's drug-riddled life and the junkie culture in which he found himself immersed. Born to Lose: The Last Rock and Roll Movie tells the storie of a tragic rock and roll star whose music and vices outshone him to the end.moreless
