Press

"An intentionally fractured, reckless and erotic ode to underground culture."
 -Eric Kohn, Indiewire

"Illustrated history of Parisian punk/New Wave/electro."
-Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice 

"The music, both old and new, which, with the exception of those attune to the French music scene, will be new and revelatory for a North American audience."
-Tomas Hachard, L Magazine 

"Punk philosophy of yesteryear with the countercultural techno ethos of today."
-Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine 

"While this uncataloguable and entrancing film gazes back in nostalgia to a time of performance-art priapism when everyone seems to have known Warhol, it also leaves room for a particularly hopeful diagnosis of the present."
-Diego Costa, Slant Magazine

"Searing performances by new, little-known bands."
-Daniel M. Gold, The New York Times 

“Insufferable.”
-Variety
