Revenge of the Mekons, the new documentary about the legendary punk collective and band featuring Jon Langford and Sally Timms, opens in New York City with a week of shows at Film Forum tomorrow night! The New York Times published a piece about the film, which you can read HERE.
The A.V. Club also just gave the film a glowing review.
"During a concert, Timms forgets the lyrics to one of her signature Mekons song, “Ghosts Of American Astronauts”; Langford ribs her, hands her a lyric book, and the band starts the song over. Rather than omit such mistakes, like a more flattering documentarian might, Angio leaves them in, just as The Mekons have always embraced their own."
It's a hell of an entertaining (and educational) film. It will open in more cities in the coming months.
