SYNOPSIS

Filmed in Los Angeles in 1979-80, The Decline of Western Civilisation is regularly cited as a masterpiece of punk cinema. Director Penelope Spheeris and her punks revel in the freedom of their madness — eschewing the Reagan era conservatism and ever softening commercial pop in favour of their alternate universe of makeshift clubs filled with hostility, violence, and raw energy.

MA15+ | Strong coarse language and sexual references
