His co-founding of The New York Dolls and The Heartbreakers put him on the cutting edge of '70s rock from glam to punk. His 1991 death in a New Orleans hotel room remains shrouded in controversy. The life, career, and influence of guitarist John Genzale, Jr.─a/k/a Johnny Thunders─is compelling reviewed via extensive interviews with friends and fans, as well as little-seen performance footage. 138 min. Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo; featurettes.
