67 minutes, a lot of it taken up by the repeated subintros with their topic headings, which, given the discussion of what Rollins tried to do at Luna Park one night a week a month, and given how long he's been known to go on for, it makes one feel only one thing about this DVD and that is CHEATED.
Now there are some funny bits, such as his further adventures with Dischord head honcho/nice guy Ian MacKaye during his youth in DC (extension of the Pet Store story from ...From the Box), his three round battle with Iggy Pop, but there's also a lot of the standard Rollins schtick we've heard before (travelling exhaustion, rage directed at everyone around him, etc.) so what was left on the cutting room floor troubles me and it should trouble you if you're a fan of Rollins, and if you aren't, there's something wrong with you.
Rollins could sneeze into a jewel box, and I would be on it with twenty dollars extended, but man, I wish there was more here because I know it's there and it's worth more than the devoted hour and a few odd minutes.
Check this DVD out if you are a Rollins' fan or even if you've never heard of him. Hank is just about the most honest, interesting, and funniest performer working today. You won't be disappointed. Even if you don't agree with him, you will still appreciate what he does.

Honestly it's Henry Rollins... if you like his stuff can you really go wrong with any of the DVD's I have a few and like them all.Published on November 14, 2013 by Tim C.
A excellent and highly entertaining spoken word performance. Rollins delivery is held to his previous talking from the box standard. Read morePublished on July 22, 2012 by Timothy A. Clyne
My only complaint is that the dvd is short. Outside of that, Rollins is at his best. Stories involving hijinx with Ian MacKaye, "conflicts" with Iggy Pop, and driving in Cairo... Read morePublished on February 15, 2008 by I. R. Gilliam
If you didn't just love Henry Rollins before, you will certainly love him after seeing this. No one has his energy, wit, or common sense when it comes to the spoken word. Read morePublished on July 13, 2007 by Molly Kilwillie
