Write for Us! John Doe Week

It’s long overdue. Everyone reviews the music career of the man born as John Nommensen Duchac in 1953, but few, if any, have examined his acting career. So it looks like B&S About Movies will have to do it. You know us: we’re up for the challenge.

While we’ve already reviewed the documentaries where John Doe appeared with X — The Decline of Western Civilization (1981) and Urgh! A Music War (1981), we still haven’t got to X: The Unheard Music (1986), so go for it!
