My word isn´t it a lovely sunny afternoon here in Reykjavik? wow it certainly looks like a day to go outside and smell the fresh air.
If it wasn´t for the face that we are all hungover from trying to obliterate the horror of last nights Eurovision out of our minds. Thank heavens we only have to do that once a year. So in order to gain some form of Karmic equilibrium it´s time for the Sunday PUnk Film Matinee. And we have a doozer for you today. I present to you Hated: GG Allin and the Murder Junkies.
For those of you who don´t know GG Allin, he is the sort of person who´s attittude to life and stage performance could be described as “unique”. If by “unique” you mean defecating and urinating onstage, rolling and eating his own crap, performing naked, committing self-injury, and attacking audience members. It´s no surprise that many of his gigs only lasted a few songs. Oh and his penis was VERY tiny. Just saying….
Hated was a documentary made by Todd Philips, to documents Allin´s life and stage persona. Alas Allin died of a drug overdose during the shooting of the film. You do get to see footage of his corpse and funeral wake in the film. This si definitely a must see. It has violence, sex, more violence, bodily fluids and Geraldo Rivera as well.
Also of note is that Todd Philips went on to direct Road Trip and The Hangover.
Watch this and then go and have your sunday dinner….
