If ever there was a band whose career testifies to the saving grace of Rock 'n' Roll -- it was the Ramones. They forged an original ethos out of the chaos of their upbringing, and then proceeded to relentlessly preach this gospel of Punk Rock for two decades, in the process sacrificing their worldly existences to their spiritual legacy. As a result, their music has entered into the lives of literally millions of people around the world, winning countless converts to the Punk Way, and, perhaps most importantly, inspiring a huge number of these converts to grab some amps and start up a band of their own -- The Clash and The Sex Pistols, just for starters -- and in so doing changed the face of Rock itself. How exactly this band from Queens managed to accomplish all this remains -- despite the close-up and personal look at the band provided by this DVD -- a mystery for the ages. As this documentary makes abundantly clear, Jeffrey Hyman, John Cummings, Douglas Colvin and Thomas Erdelyi -- aka Joey, Johnny, Dee Dee and Tommy -- were a bunch of "losers" if ever there was one (although Tommy comes off as relatively well adjusted), yet these same four guys -- with a little help from Marky (well, in his case, a lot), Ritchie and C.J. -- went on to become one of the most influential bands of their era, and in the process were transformed into the patron saints of the outcast. That they managed to get together and do what they did is -- to paraphrase Joe Strummer in an interview segment that was inexplicably deleted from the theatrical release, but, thankfully, is here on the DVD -- so unlikely as to be comprehensible only by being seen as the result of some sort of divine intervention. In short, the Ramones were, in their own way, a sort of miracle. Hallelujah! Watch this DVD and feel your faith renewed, in all its manifest complexity.
