Nevertheless, the movie's good. The music's good. Joe Dick (as portrayed by Hugh Dillon) lead singer and protagonist of Hard Core Logo, puts the band and consequently the movie on his back and carries it to it's surprisingly grim, inexorable conclusion.
This movie is awesome just fucking awesome I can't word it any other way a must see not only by punk fans but by Canadians as well
Movie fun fact: that shitty emo band Billy Tallent got there name from the fame-tempted guitarist in this movie......but don't let that hold you back from seeing this awesome movie
BUY (IF YOU CAN FIND IT)
Good enough film not exactly a classic in my book but it was well made and probably ahead of the time when this sort of thing became very common.
HCL are a crappy band who think they are better than what they are. Joe Dick is the singer who tops himself at the end when the guitarist fucks off to LA to be with another band. I mean that sums it up in a nutshell.
The music is rubbish, my opinion. There are a few funny scenes though which keep you interested and its very Canadian in its way.
I think the acting was actually very good and I imagine those involved had a good time making the film (apparently it was all done very sober!).
Not bad but I wont be queuing up to see hard core logo 2 or 3.

If you've been on the road or grew up in this period, you're most likely gonna like it. Feels more like a documentry, then a mock. The acid trip was wicked and full of symbolism.
