Secun de la Rosa
Indiana, 1984. A bespectacled trombone player is wakened by his angry girlfriend, who's tied him up and leaves him in a bed in a field. He tries to crawl away, but a boy scout and cub scout hit him with foam swords. Two skivvy-clad rockers berate him and a third helps him discard his ropes. A pippi-longstocking-haired woman tells him there's a cabin up the road where he can clean up. In the cabin, an old salt tells him about Knuckleface Jones, a man of power. Inspired, the young man leaves for home. He is resolved to do everything he's capable of. Has he become Knuckleface Jones? Written by
This is one of several short films included on a DVD entitled "Movieside Film Festival"--a compilations of mostly terrible short films. Now you need to understand that I rarely say such negative things about shorts--after all, you want to encourage young film makers....except for the ones whose films are featured on this disk. You see, I love short films and have bought or seen just about every short film compilation I could find over the years and it offends me that such slap-dash and suspect quality films were marketed to unsuspecting viewers.
As for "Knuckleface Jones", the film is virtually pointless and offensive just to be pointless and offensive. There really isn't much of any plot and there are a lot of non-professional actors doing pretty much pointless things. Why they would bother listing this on IMDb is a bit beyond me, as it seems less of a film and more of some friends playing with mom and dad's handy-cam. A chore best seen while under the influence.
