It seems there have been countless documentaries about punk, from the earliest days in New York and England to contemporary scenes around the world. What distinguishes 1-2 FU, an hour-long 2004 BBC production we discovered thanks to Dangerous Minds, is its intentionally personal bent. Although the film definitely provides a history of punk, it views the movement through the eyes of a true punk fanatic — British radio and TV host Jonathan Ross. The doc, which includes interviews with everyone from Vivienne Westwood to OG punk zinesters, makes perfect lunch-hour viewing. You can watch it after the jump.
