Penelope Spheeris: Last of the Mohawkans

Michele Kirsch, New Musical Express, 7 May 1988

PENELOPE SPHEERIS is the West Coast punk auteur whose movies have traced the decline and fall of hard core culture. Dudes completes her trilogy of slam, taking a darkly comic swipe at the violence, vehemence and stupidity of life in the less than zero lane. MICHELE KIRSCH pins Penelope to the wall.
