Good Overview But Pretty Standard Rock Doc

I was really looking forward to this one. I had read some good things about it and was stoked to find it already available on Showtime app ahead of its August premiere. It's a good film but really nothing more than the standard rock doc. Without insulting the film it gives you exactly what you would get back in the day on an episode of Behind The Music. It feels like some history is glossed over or skipped entirely (no mention of God Bless The Go-Go's.... Why?) I'd love to see a director's cut of this. I'm not suggesting the Go-Go's need some crazy 4-hour long career examination like the films about Petty, Eagles and Rush but they certainly warrant another 30 minutes or so. It was nice seeing original band members interviewed and it's hard not to feel bad for original manager Ginger who Jane probably rightfully suggests they should've stuck with. Worth a view for sure but here's hoping maybe a longer version will see the light of day in the future.

Excellent!

I've been eagerly waiting to see this since news of it was announced several months ago. I'm a longtime fan of The GoGos, actually I'm one of the Saturday Night Live viewers who bought their debut album right after they did the show in 1981; I could listen to We Got the Beat over and over again and never get tired of it. This is an excellent documentary, and it was terrific to see them in their very early punk days when they were just starting out. I can't help but wonder if they're still friendly with original members Margot Olavarria and Elissa Bello, or Paula Jean Brown, who was a short-term member after Jane Wiedlin's temporary departure, since all three make appearances here. Kudos to director Alison Elwood for a fantastic film!
