Storyline

Read Ridley's independent films acquired minor cult status in Europe. Intrigued, Rolling Stone Magazine Germany sends reporter Andy Morris to Nashville to do a cover story on Ridley and intends to break the indie film story before the mainstream media discovers him. In Nashville, Andy Morris discovers that Read Ridley is a hard man to track down. Nobody seems to know the guy or how to find him. Andy Morris rents some of Ridley's movies and is horrified to discover his movies in fact, suck, big time. What's worse, he finds himself completely unable to persuade anyone else that Ridley is a joke, including his editor who demands the story and will get it with or without his cooperation. Morris is being tortured from all sides. Ridley himself is plunged into his own particular hell as he makes the rounds to hustle up money to complete yet another awful movie. Through out the movie, we see select 60 second clips of some of Ridley's work, horrendous low budget fare like Doctor Beyondo Eats ... Written by Anonymous

What a trippin' flick
28 August 1999 | by (Columbus, Ohio) – See all my reviews

I saw Films That Suck at The Nashville Independent Film Festival. What a trippin' flick.

Just let me say that I loved the story line, the cast (especially 'Andy Morris'), the camera work and pictures, the original directing style, and most of all, the soundtrack!

So far, I found no means of ordering the music. Somebody Help Me! I must have that soundtrack.

Anyway, I should have gone to the party afterwards, because I need to meet more capable and creative filmakers that share my taste in intelligent humor and modern rock music.
