MVD Visual has announced plans to reissue the classic 1980 punk flick Blank Generation. In fact, it’s coming out next Tuesday, February 23. What better way to describe the film than with a nice quote from the man himself, Richard Hell?
This is a priceless package. The real burnt-out New York in January and February 1978, the Voidoids live at CBGB, Ed Lachman’s cinematography, Elliot Goldenthal’s sound track, Carole Bouquet’s face, my lithe figure, Andy Warhol to break your heart, Luc Sante demonically extracting the ugly truths from me re: the horror of it all (bonus feature which is better than the movie itself)… unique. Spring for it.
Blank Generation tells the classic punk rock story of boy likes girl, girl likes boy, but girl still loves ex. Throw in some classic Voidoids footage, some shots of a dirty NYC, give Andy Warhol a role, and there ya go: Punk Rock!
