Edgeplay: A Film about the Runaways

( 1 )

Overview

Years before the Go-Go's and the Bangles proved the commercial viability of all-female rock bands (and while Courtney Love was still in grade school), the Runaways were blazing new trails for women in rock & roll. Playing loud, swaggering hard rock which unapologetically dealt with sex, drugs, and wild living, the Runaways were seen as a novelty act by many when they released their first album in 1976; it wasn't until years later, after the solo success of band members Joan Jett and Lita Ford, that their ...

Overview

Years before the Go-Go's and the Bangles proved the commercial viability of all-female rock bands (and while Courtney Love was still in grade school), the Runaways were blazing new trails for women in rock & roll. Playing loud, swaggering hard rock which unapologetically dealt with sex, drugs, and wild living, the Runaways were seen as a novelty act by many when they released their first album in 1976; it wasn't until years later, after the solo success of band members Joan Jett and Lita Ford, that their importance and influence was widely recognized. Edgeplay: A Film About the Runaways is a documentary directed by Victory Tischler-Blue (who, as Vicki Blue, played bass with the group) which deals with the ups and downs of the band's career -- a story fraught with abusive management, sexual stereotyping, an uncomprehending record company, and a band of teenagers who were literally growing up on the road. A number of the group's better known songs do not appear in Edgeplay, due to the fact that Joan Jett refused to cooperate with the making of the film or allow her songs to be used on the soundtrack.

    Finally! A band about which there are so many unanswered questions. A Band that hundreds of thousands of fans would still kill to see live! A provocative, ground breaking, rule bending group of mature fifteen year old girls working their butts off and rocking that stage! A great group and a fun film if you're still dying to see the girls in action. By in action I mean; talking about the old days and their lives, separately of course, documentary style. If you dig rock n roll, if you dig the Runaways and if you like documentaries then check this film out. I didn't learn anything new but I enjoyed the ride :)

    *Joan Jett is discussed but does not appear in the film as an interviewee
