So Martin Scorsese’s in talks to do a film about The Ramones. It better be more like “Goodfellas” (1990) than “Hugo” (2011). Barf. Here’s a Motion Picture Purgatory (p)review I did for Lech (Born to Lose: The Last Rock & Roll Movie) Kowalski’s revealing doc about Ramones bassist Dee Dee. It got reprinted as a giant full-color foldout poster included in the 2003 DVD release, along with a sticker sheet of temporary tats reproducing Dee Dee’s own, like the crown & name logo for his short-lived rap persona “Dee Dee King.” Original header for the 2002 Montreal Mirror publication of this comic strip movie review: “Illusions propagated or pulverized? Most realistic Ramone ruminates!” (To see full-sized, keep clicking on the image to open it in a new window & use the magnify function).
