>>She said she's especially having problems coming up with ideas for films
>(documentary or feature) dealing with the 90s. Grunge, alternative, etc.
How about "Kurt & Courtney" Fox Lorber Films 1999, a bit trashy and tabloid
but still a very interesting documentary.

A few other suggestions for earlier time periods... "The Great Rock-n-Roll
Swindle" (deals with the Sex Pistols and scamster/manager Malcolm McLaren),
"Sid & Nancy" (Sid Vicious and Nancy Spungen's punk rock romance--Courtney
makes a quick appearance in this flick), and "Stop Making Sense"
(interesting concert film filled with great music. directed by Jonathan
Demme who went on to big fame for "Silence of the Lambs")"Rock-n-Roll High
School" a bit lame with Vince Van Patton as the star but who could forget
The Ramones music/appearance?! Also "Rude Boy" a semi-documentary featuring
The Clash.
