Hey, We’re Certified Fresh!
Check out all a huge collection of End of the Century reviews on rottentomatoes.com. Because everyone seems to love the movie, we’ve got their official “Fresh” rating. Here are a few quotes from recent press:
To the short list of great rock docs — Don’t Look Back, Let It Be, The Kids Are Alright, The Decline of Western Civilization, etc. — must now be added End of the Century: The Story of the Ramones, which is currently in limited release and worth tracking down, if you’re a fan, even if it involves airfare.
Kurt Loder, MTV
This absorbing documentary by Michael Gramaglia and Jim Fields traces the history of the seminal punk rock band in exhaustive detail.
Stephen Holden, The New York Times
Fans will be grateful and the uninitiated should listen and learn.
Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide
Unvarnished and raw as the punk pioneers whose turbulent trajectory it traces, End of the Century: The Story of the Ramones is a true fan’s nirvana.
Megan Lehmann, The New York Post
It’s as strong a document about the pleasure and pain of rock ‘n’ roll as has been seen in years.
A thorough, gutsy and appropriately scuzzy-looking documentary by Michael Gramaglia and Jim Fields, featuring rare footage and interviews with the stars of the CBGB era.
Jami Bernard, The New York Daily News
An essential addition to the growing (and inherently ironic) field of Punkology
Ty Burr, The Boston Globe
Music fans, especially those who remember the rock scene of the mid-’70s, will have a blast with this raw, funky look at The Ramones.
Doris Toumarkine, Film Journal International
Fields and Gramaglia suggest, without having to twist our arms, that the Ramones helped change the course of our cultural history.
