I remember seeing this film for the first time and when the end credits rolled I was blown away. A big infulence on my first feature film The Last Broadcast. David Holzman’s Diary is a cinematic treasure that is well worth the watch if you can find it.

Finally LAGTFS is released on DVD. Lost in the vaults of Paramount for years. Starring a 15 year-old Diane Lane. Members of the Clash and Sex Pistols stand in as band members. Interesting depiction of the punk movement from a feminist POV.
