The Other F Word

Rated NR 98 minutes 2010

It’s “Fatherhood.” People grow up sometimes, more or less — even punk rockers. That’s the hook for this watchable documentary by Andrea Blaugrund Nevins, who listens to a slew of aging bad boys turned family men, including Pennywise’s Jim Lindberg, Lars Frederiksen of Rancid, Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Ron Reyes, who quit Black Flag and the whole punk scene in 1980. They tell of packing Grecian Formula and hand sanitizer for concert tours, but also, some of them, of their determination to be better dads than the ones who drove them to become punks in the first place. Better to nurture than destroy. The doc gradually accumulates a warm, sincere tone, which can look funny coming from a guy wearing a “Fuck You” T-shirt.(98 min.)
