What I know about their arc doesn't seem to lend itself to that kind of storytelling. "They didn't really talk or hang out together after about 1981, then they stopped touring and everyone died."
"There's something more honest, he believed, about traditional methods of mass starvation, labour camps, and machine gunning millions to death. Stalin was a vinyl guy who sneered at Truman converting everything to compact disc." - Thomas Jefferson

School principle: "You students - you're all in big trouble. What are your names?"

Johnny Ramone: "We'ah not students, mistah. We'ah Ramones."

Yeah, I imagine most biopics are unnecessary. People don't live their lives like they're in a movie—why would a movie that's not mostly fictional be any more interesting than just following around one of your friends for their whole life?

Generally speaking, biopics either have to amp up the fiction or limit their scope to a very short period of time, or they're just gonna be dull.

I would be very happy keeping that baby inside the fake world for all those years. The real world is disappearing up it's own Trump hole.
