Azerrad skewers Gus

I love it - Come as You Are author on the new Gus Van Zant movie (title of post: Ill Will Hunting):

The more I think about it, the more it becomes clear that Van Sant had access to some very inside information. He could have made a nuanced, challenging and revelatory film. Instead, he refused to let the truth get in the way of what he thought was a better story.

But what do you expect from a guy who claims that “Venus in Furs” is the “‘I Wanna Hold Your Hand’ of punk rock.” Any pinhead knows the “I Wanna Hold Your Hand” of punk rock is “Rockaway Beach.”
