Rate this:
Revealing, hilarious, and touching, The Other F Word asks what happens when a generation's ultimate anti-authoritarians - punk rockers - become society's ultimate authorities - fathers. With a large chorus of punk's leading men, this film follows Jim Lindberg through his hysterical and moving journey from belting his band's anthem to embracing his newfound role in mid-life: fatherhood.

It's got some good concert footage but outside of that it's not that great. It had far to many contributing artists to focus on the subject matter with any depth. It sort of picked a random topic had 10 different people tell a story slightly related to it then moved on to the next area. Would have been much better if they'd picked maybe three or four musicians instead.

Not a particularly well done documentary considering it lags on and there is an entire section indicting the music industry and showing how hard it is for them to make money. However, if the subject matter and people involved are of any interest to you then it's worth checking out even though it will probably be preaching to the choir.

Blink-182 and Everclear don't really sound like "Punk Rock" to me, but whatever. My only problem with this doc., is that they should have dedicated a chapter to the mothers of the kids. We see some of them, but they aren't really interviewed. We can't have responsible fathers without mothers. Maybe get a mothers view on fatherhood. Be sure to check out the outtake of Mark Mothersbaugh (DEVO). Great story.
