Synopsis by Mark Deming
Offering revved-up pop-punk songs and a cheerfully snotty attitude, Blink 182 became one of the breakthrough acts of 1999, following Green Day and the Offspring into the pantheon of punk bands who'd learned how to connect with the mass audience. Blink 182: Punk Poets is an unauthorized documentary on the band that looks back at their history and their slow rise to mainstream stardom. Produced without the participation of the group or their representatives, Blink 182: Punk Poets features no music or performances from Blink 182.
