Editorial Reviews

It's 1985 and Stevo is that rare animal, a punk rocker in the Mormon stronghold of Salt Lake City, Utah. He just graduated from college with honors and now his life is a nutty roller coaster ride of rock shows, stealing cars, beating up rednecks and non-stop partying with his buddy, Heroin Bob, andhis girlfriend. But with the scene getting lame and Stevo going nowhere fast, he has to put his punk ideals to the test. With a choice between "No Future" and Harvard Law School, what's a guy with blue hair supposed to do? Fueled by a classic punk rock soundtrack and hilarious, energetic performances from Matthew Lillard (Scream, She's All That), Michael Goorjian (Leaving Las Vegas, Hard Rain) and Annabeth Gish (Beautiful Girls, Nixon), SLC PUNK is one punk's madcap search for a way to grow up without selling out.

Customer Reviews

This movie was one of the best movies i've ever seen.
"audiokarate"
It asks interesting questions about the way society functions and how everyone is living a life of hypocracy, wheather you're punk or conformist.

Anyone that is at all punk or just anyone looking for a really good laugh needs to get this movie now!!!

I am not trying to insult anyone here, but I have read dozens of reviews of this excellent movie, and it seems a lot of folks miss the point.

This is a great movie, and I'll tell you why: it is a very very authentic insight, not into the punk scene in 1980s America (which there was one, but it wasn't very widespread or mainstream), but into adolescence and the transitions into maturity we all have to make. It is a very good study on what happens to the identities we assume for ourselves as teenagers when we discover, in our early twenties, that they no longer fit.

If you haven't seen it yet, you may not want to read this review any further.

Stevo was a poser! I can't say it any plainer than that. He admits it too, so anyone who wastes the energy to type "Stevo wasn't very convincing as a punk," or criticizes the punk scene as portrayed as not accurate, completely miss the point of this movie. They weren't punks! They were teenagers, trying to find an identity for themselves. They knew what their parents and city were offering wasn't for them, but they had no clue what was, so they were trying something out. And for most of them (let us not forget Mike, my favorite character) the whole punk thing didn't stick.

If you view the movie through that lense, it was fantastic. Lillards performance was outstanding. The music was great. The script was very witty and entertaining. And yes, I imagine the punk movement in SLC, if there ever was one, was pretty lame. I know it was in the midwest where I grew up. That doesn't take away from the movie - it makes it more authentic and accessible.

Being an ex-punk (my punk years were 1978-1983) I didn't expect much from this movie. what a pleasant surprise! Rather than the fashion clones most movies portray, the punks were all individuals, no two the same. Matthew Lillard was absolutely brilliant. I agree that he is probably one of the best and most under-rated actors of his generation.
The soundtrack was HOT too! They included many of the bands that were part of punk's eclectic mix, including Roxy Music (mother of pearl at that!), all the way through the Dead Kennedy's. The only reason I did not give it a 5 was that the punk scene was portrayed as much more violent than the one I experienced. Then again, I was in San Francisco at an earlier time - perhaps SLC punks were more into thrashing.
Even the commentary on the mods was appropriate! The entire film had much more depth and was much more thought-provoking than other more "serious" films I had recently watched. One other caveat - I would have liked to see more women with short hair. Try this movie - it will surprise you!

SLC Punk stands for Salt Lake City Punk, when I first heard about this film I simply said "what the hell does SLC stand for?" This movie takes place in 1985,which is genius showing the early punk years. That's why your not going to see any Green Day, Rancid, or The Casualties t-shirts or posters. But they do talk about the "Sex Pistols" and the "Ramones" The thing that caught the corner of my eye was that James Meredino decided to shoot this film in 2:35:1. Shouldn't it be in 1:85:1? But I guess that's James Merdino's style. For a movie which they only wasted eight hundred thousand dollars, it looks pretty damn good. It looks like they wasted more than eight hundred thousand dollars.
This film is about two punkers named "Stevo and heroin Bob (Matthew Lillard and Michael Goorjian) who are college graduates who's dream is to make pure anarchy all over the country. Stevo's dad is a lawyer, who wants Stevo to go to Harvard Stevo has the grades, but he doesn't want to go with the system. After hardcore punk shows, and punch of drugs taken in, the two punks don't know what to do in Salt Lake. Heroin Bob doesn't really do heroin, infact he is scared of needles, that's why they call him that. What really caught my attention in this film is Til Schweiger and how well he played his character mark. My favorite scene is when Mark explains how his whole family died, I know you will love that scene. Til Schweiger did that part so well it deserved an Oscar. This film talks about the history of punk, and what a punker thinks.
This DVD includes audio commentary by Matthew Lillard, Michael Goorgian, and writer/director James Meredino. The commentary is really funny. What I noticed in it was the fact that they mentioned they took out some scenes, so where are all the deleted scenes?

**This film was absolutely not what I expected. I was prepared for a simple movie littered with side-splitting laughs. Which is what SLC Punks! started out to be. Quirky, intriguing characters. Funny incidents. But then it spins off into a deep, emotional drama. This completely floored me, and I loved SLC Punks! even more because it. **I can't say this movie told much of a story, and I don't think it was meant to. This movie focuses on character rather than plot, which is beautifully illustrated by the non-linear sequence of events. Stevo and Bob are introduced as 1985 SLC punks, but slowly become two people searching for themselves as the film progresses. **The acting here is absolutely fabulous. Matthew Lillard(Scream) gives us a spectacular performance, complete with much facial expression. The most powerful scene in the film is undoubtedly when Stevo finds Bob the morning after Brandy's party. He's lost and tortured, and those tears and facial torments are so real it's shocking. He's lost not only his best friend, but his inspiration, I think. After all, wasn't Bob the truest punk of them all? Michael A. Goorjian(Hard Rain) gives a fabulous performance as well, for an example watch the scene when he is confronted with the needle at the doctor's. He played the part of the neurotic, paranoia-stricken, hardcore punk true to the last thread. I personally thought Trish, as well, was very well played by Annabeth Gish(The X-Files). **Whether or not this film's focus is poseurs and punk depends how you look at it. Although they are undeniably important elements in the film, I drew very significant meaning from the characters themselves, not their lifestyle. Stevo's journey through various stages in his life had a huge impact on me as a person.Read more ›
