No Room For Rockstars

A meandering but still punkish documentary overview of the Vans Warped Tour, director Parris Patton's No Room For Rockstars, shot over the 2010 iteration of the event, offers up a slice-of-life look at the punk rock juggernaut, a rain-or-shine misfit circus that crisscrosses North America every summer as a rollicking outdoor minstrel show aimed at kids hungry for live music mainly outside of the glossy pop mainstream. If it's mostly an amorphous fan's document that doesn't locate much in the way of a dramatic throughline, the backstage and behind-the-scenes access will at least still prove engaging enough to its core demographic even if few others.
