As if it were a precious and primitive offering, rock and roll gave Patty Schemel all her power, and Hole’s lesbian drummer assumed it by living at the pace of the revolutions her drumming pulse dictated. From a farm in the outskirts of Seattle to the cover of Rolling Stone, Schemel herself became a hit, on the verge of everything, even death at 27 –almost printing the myth of the lonely rock hearts club of people who left pretty corpses at that age, like Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin or her friend Kurt Cobain, who is featured in this documentary in remarkably intimate moments in glamorous VHS. Hit So Hard goes deep into the yet untold density of 90’s rock, going from the center to the periphery and back, like a whirl in which everything that was underground became mainstream with songs that fell like electric storms. In Schemel there’s not only a huge story, but also a well-crafted tribute to the eccentric resistance of rock drummers.
