Movie Summary

Director:
Unknown
Released:
2007
Rating:
R
The true-life story of Darby Crash, who became an L.A. punk icon before taking his own life in 1980. After getting kicked out of high school, Darby forms The Germs with a collection of friends who have little experience with their instruments or playing music; Pat Smear, Lorna Doom and Don Bolles. After a few disastrous gigs, the band begins to click and Darby and The Germs soon find themselves the talk of the L.A. punk scene. When hard drugs enter the picture, Darby starts alienating those closest to him and when The Germs collapse, he's at a loss to figure out what comes next.

Metacritic Score

  • 80

    Variety

    Actor Shane West and writer-director Rodger Grossman have a clear, unwavering perspective on Crash that should entice curiosity seekers and old punks.

  • 70

    Los Angeles Times

    Grossman bangs out a visceral, energized biopic that captures the vibrant idiocy of punked-out youth and a tortured soul gaining his wish of cult status.

  • 50

    The New York Times Jeannette Catsoulis

    The movie offers too little of Crash's justly revered lyricism and too much of his self-mutilation and manufactured chaos.
