Hold on to your pool chairs! All three of Penelope Spheeris’ entertaining, heartbreaking and iconic Decline of Western Civilization documentaries – the films’ chronicling L.A.’s hardcore punk, hair-metal and gutter-punk phenomena – have been lovingly restored! Part I looks into the punk subculture that was largely ignored by the rock music press of the time. The film has also been given a 2K high-definition restoration, which Spheeris supervised.
