East Bay Punk is a well-made documentary, but the filmmakers have some key issues with it. 1) It is overly biased towards the band. This is one of the greatest bands of the era, but the film makes them out to be the bad guys. The band is portrayed as a group of half-breeds, obsessed with punk and an arrogant asshole, who are mostly responsible for the rise of the East Bay punk scene. The documentary is all about the band, and nothing else. I found this to be quite insulting to the band. Even if you were not a fan of the band, you still probably had no reason to dislike the film. 2) It is too quick. The documentary is almost 2 hours, but only 15 minutes of it are actually about the band. I would say that this is quite unnecessary, because the band has more to do with the rise of the scene, and the band is just one of the many reasons why the scene happened. The band really should have been the center of the film. 3) The film is not a good representation of the East Bay punk scene. The band is the one that started it all, but they are not the most important reason for the scene to be what it is. There are many bands that contributed to the scene, but not many who were responsible for the scene. It is amazing to see that the film doesn't even mention the band, and instead just shows a few photos of the band and their friends. This was one of the reasons why I did not like the film. I don't think the film was a good representation of the scene at all. It should have been a documentary about the scene. It should have been about the band, but it was not. If they had shown the scene as it actually was, it would have been more accurate. The film does a very good job of showing the scene, but it does not focus on the band. The film is just a band-centric documentary, which I felt was not the best way to portray the band. I would say that the documentary was slightly biased towards the band, but it should have been unbiased towards the scene. Overall, I would recommend the film, because it is a very good documentary, but it is also very biased towards the band. I would give this film a 8/10, but if the film had focused more on the scene, I would give it a 9/10. I would have loved to have seen more about the band, but even then, the film is still very good.
