The Decline of Western Civilization Part III (1998)

Director: Penelope Spheeris

Stars: Stephen Chambers, Flea, Gary Fredo

The Decline of Western Civilization III is a 1998 documentary film that follows the gutter punk lifestyle of homeless teenagers.

This movie looks at a group of punk kids that are homeless and living either on the streets or flop houses in LA. There is nothing glamorous about this documentary at all. Many of these kids say that they will be dead within five years. They are mostly teenagers that did not get along with their parents. Listen up parents, you do not want this to happen to your kids.

The performances in the movie were by four different bands: Final Conflict, Litmus Green, Naked Aggression and The Resistance. You get to see what has happened to the LA punk scene. It is not what it once was at all.

This was a sad eye opening documentary that dealt more with the lives of these punk kids and less with the music. It is something to see. Enjoy.
