Synopsis by Michael Hastings
In this hourlong documentary, culled primarily from a 1991 interview with filmmaker Lech Kowalski, the late punk pioneer Dee Dee Ramone discusses his storied career - both as a musician and as an on-again, off-again drug addict. Taking its title from the Ramones anthem "Chinese Rocks," the film is mostly a one-person recollection, but includes many archival clips and concert footage. Director Kowalski previously profiled the late-'70s punk scene with his 1981 release D.O.A.
