I heading out to see the sold out showing of Punk’s Dead: SLC Punk 2 in Burbank. The original SLC Punk movie is, in my unequivocal opinion, the truest depiction of punk culture ever committed to film. Coming out of the DC scene, this movie set in Salt Lake City spoke to me far more than West Coast fare like Suburbia. From the joy in goofy offensive behavior to debating the meaning of punk, this movie is spot on. The main character, played by Matthew Lillard in his best role ever, is the punk son of a Harvard educated attorney. Me too. So maybe that is part of why the movie resonates with me the way it does. Maybe I have more punk commitment than the protagonist of #1. I guess I’ll see, when I watch the next generation of punk in Punk’s Dead: SLC Punk 2. I’ll let you all know. And, if you’ve never seen SLC Punk, see it immediately.
