The Dirt

Biography Comedy Drama


 

The story of Mötley Crüe's formation and their rise to fame.

"The Dirt" showcases everything you could ever possibly want to know about one of the best-selling bands of all time. The hedonistic lifestyles of the band members make for some audacious scenes; there's plenty of drama and the weaving together of each member's story to complement rather than contradict is done superbly. Long, drawn-out scenes drag the pacing and the mood down significantly in the middle of the film, but overall this is a fun adventure that has been so well cast it's almost scary. Home sweet home.
