The Decline of Western Civilization Collection

Previously only seen at special screenings or on bootlegs tapes, Penelope Spheeris’ three-part documentary series chronicling the punk scene of the ‘70s, the heavy metal scene of the ‘80s, and the anti-establishment, homeless teens of the ‘90s, has been restored and collected in a four DVD set. A fascinating look into three decades of counter­culture lifestyles in Los Angeles, Decline is a glorifying, damning, and sometimes heartbreaking look at alternative American lifestyles.
