Film: Hard Core Logo

Hard Core Logo is a 1996 Canadian mockumentary directed by Bruce McDonald, based on a Canadian experimental novel written by Michael Turner in 1993. Both works center around the reunion tour of the titular massively dysfunctional Canadian punk band, and the interactions between the band members, but the movie changes and expands on the novel in various ways, adds some additional characters (particularly "Bruce McDonald," the director of the documentary) and character traits (such as John's schizophrenia), alters the ending, and has a bigger fandom.

HCL gained additional popularity when it was discovered by fans of Due South, since lead guitarist Billy Tallent (later the namesake for the popular Canadian band Billy Talent) was an early role for Callum Keith Rennie, the actor who played Ray Kowalski.
