Sunset Strip

The history of the legendary street is examined in this hyperbole-laden, but well-shot documentary. For every insightful interview with Kim Fowley, Kenneth Anger, Dita Von Teese, Rodney Bingenheimer and Lemmy from Motorhead, there's a ham-fisted one with Mickey Rourke and Billy Corgan. Avoid turning it off during the first pretentious 15 minutes or so when you'll see a yawn-inducing jam from 70s soft-rockers America, and you'll see some footage of X playing at the Whisky and a moment from the film Urgh! A Music War.
