Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Patty Schemel, the hard hitting drummer of Courtney Love s seminal rock band Hole, is not only a master of the sticks, but a true survivor. After growing up as an outsider near Seattle she shot to stardom in the early 90 s and was engulfed by the music scene. Patty casually documented her life as a rock star at band practice, on the road, backstage and in front of millions of people. She captured rare, precious moments behind the scenes with Hole and Kurt Cobain and the intense highs and lows of these dynamic relationships often shaped by an addiction that consumed her and almost killed her.

Exclusive behind the scenes footage of Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain singing Stinking About You .

Love how honest she was through the whole thing and letting us see the real her.
J. Rodriguez
It is also important to stress that the home movies footage of Love and Cobain are shown here for the first time.

I met Patty, Eric, Courtney, Melissa, Patty's wife Christina, and P. David Ebersole after the film.

Amazing rare footage, revealing the raw truth, the Cobains were not drug ravaged monsters all the time, and they loved their daughter quite a lot. The bonding of the couple with Patty was a magical time for all three, but once the dominos fell, they fell hard and harshly.

Hole has NEVER received the credit it is being the musical genuis band that they arem musically and lyrically. And YES Patty, after hearing the story, you can tell quite well that you are not the drummer on Celebrity Skin. That douchebag producer wanted Courtney at the forefront, but in the end, even though I love that CD too, the passion is missing, it is polished up for the masses.

I am happy Patty has come to terms with her exciting life, and is happy where she is these days. One of the very best rock and roll docs I have ever seen.

For some time now, I have been reviewing movies from Well Go USA, and all of them have been either about martial arts or Asian history - great films, I must say. However, what was my surprise when I saw "Hit So Hard," a movie that significantly departs from anything that I have seen previously from this entertainment company. This is one of the best rock & roll documentaries that I have had the pleasure to watch, and a great acquisition for the folks at Well Go USA.

Right from the beginning, we are told that "Hit So Hard" was not meant to be, and that it was the result of a fortunate accident. You see, Patty Schemel, drummer for the iconic rock band Hole, was given a video camera before they went on the road for their "Live Through This" tour. Consequently, she began to film anything that had to do with the band and its members. Under the leadership of Courtney Love, Hole is one of the female-driven rock bands of all time (that is, with the exception of Eric Erlandson, the guitarist). As a result of all the filming, Schemel compiled a lot of footage to generate not only a documentary about the band, but also about, as the subtitle of the film says, "The life and near death of Patty Schemel."

In regards to the band, we watch portions of videos from Hole's history and their tours in Nagoya, Japan; Lollapaloozas in Vancouver and Detroit; Brixton Academy, in London; Le Bataclan, in Paris, Pukkelpop Festival, in Belgium; and more. We also see Courtney Love with the late Kurt Cobain (of Nirvana), playing with Frances Bean, their daughter; the effect of Cobain's death and fellow Hole bassist Kristen Pfaff; and much more. Of course, Schemel also talks about her musical history, as well as her homosexuality and that of other lesbian musicians.

Party Schemel has let the world in to her private life after being behind the drum kit for years. To see where she came from, went through and who she is now was inspiring. Of course, seeing footage of Kurt, Courtney and Frances is an added bonus and one you don't want to miss.

Besides that Patty Schemel has always been one of my favorite drummers, this documentary is well done in terms of capturing her struggle with drugs and alcohol amidst the music and challenging events of the early 90s (death of Kurt Cobain, etc.). Excellent documentary and honest and forthcoming memoir--thanks for making it!

I'm a big Hole fan but this documentary was beyond cliche. Got rich and famous, went crazy on drugs, now finding meaning in life. It's been done to death. boring

I loved this documentary. I gives such a different perspective on that era. I don't often watch movies more than once or twice, but I love showing this when I have friends over.
