D.O.A. - A Rite of Passage


This incendiary look at punk's origins, in theaters for the first time since the 1980s.

 

“The Sex Pistols’ rendition of ‘God Save The Queen’ alone is worth the price of admission.” - Village Voice

“It’s the eerie Spungen-Vicious dialogue that will probably haunt most viewers.” - Rolling Stone


"As much of a Woodstock as punk may ever inspire.”  - New York Times

 

D.O.A. centers around the Sex Pistols’ ill-fated ’78 U.S. tour, which ended with the group infamously disbanding.  This molotov cocktail of a film (produced by High Times Magazine) also features incredible, indelible live footage of fellow giants X-Ray Spex, Generation X w/ Billy Idol, Sham 69 and the Dead Boys.
