I am not a fan of "The Ramones", but I saw this dvd and was curious enough to rent it. Truth to be told, I am pretty happy I did just that.
For fans, "End of the Century - The Story of the Ramones" is a must see, due to the fact that it depicts the beginnings of the band they love, and the struggles for power among its members. Drugs, music and fame are just some of the themes this documentary tackles, through old photos and live takes of the shows of the band, and also through interviews with members of "The Ramones". The bonus features are quite interesting, too.
For non-fans, this is the opportunity to know more about a band that had an enormous influence in rock history. Have you ever seen a t-shirt with "Los Ramones" written on it? Well, this is your chance to discover what that inscription means :)
All in all, strongly recommended!
