Shane West as Darby Crash of The Germs

Shane West as Darby Crash of The Germs

I am very fascinated by true life stories about heroin addiction, but unfortunately, almost all of them have tragic endings.  The film “What We Do Is Secret,” is no exception.  The film is the story of short lived Los Angeles punk band The Germs.  The charismatic, but drug addicted lead singer, Darby Crash is the focus of the film and it shows them getting kicked out of clubs for taunting the audience to inciting riots at their shows.  Shane West does a great job portraying Darby Crash who died of a heroin overdose as part of a suicide pact at age 22.  His death went largely unnoticed as he died the day before John Lennon was tragically assassinated in December of 1980.
