Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll (1991)
User ReviewsAdd a Review
For some odd reason, the filmmakers left out the monologue X-Blow and included one not on the CD about a deranged guy freaking out about the rat crawling in the walls of his apartment. But the video release puts the X-Blow footage back in, where it damn well belongs!
Eric Bogosian is a bit of a doom and gloom leftist at times but he's an amazing performer and knock you on your ass funny. I heard he is thinking of hanging up his hat and not doing anymore one man shows. He'll be missed by this cat!
I read this book "Sex, Drugs, Rock & Roll" back when it was published in 1992, and caught his show that same year. It's not for everyone, but if you like one-man shows that have something relevant to say about nearly everyone living in America, then this is a rewarding film. I've searched in vain, so trust me when I say you won't find anything like this in contemporary performances...not mainstream anyway. Give this one a watch. It stays with you.
I would rather sleep with my aunt and be hung upside down and drained of my blood than see Sex,Drugs,Rock & Roll again.
