"Louisville is noticeably absent from the film."
Hate to break it to you but Louisville isn't even on the radar in the overall history of any kind of music. It's just a podunk city in Kentucky of all places. There are midwest cities that deserve a slight amount of recognition but a city in Kentucky ain't one of them.
Just because you lived here during the 80's doesn't mean anyone in the L.A. or D.C. real hardcore scenes cares about a copycat middle-America town.
I'm sure small town rags in St. Louis, Nashville, Dallas, Oklahoma City, etc.. are saying the same thing.
