Does punk film-making actually work? Not really...
23 December 2005 | by (Stockton, CA) – See all my reviews

I got this movie on a lark, because Patton Oswalt was listed as the "cake pervert." It was largely the highlight of the film.

Given that the writer/lead and director were members of the Vandals, I figure they are attempting a "punk" movie. The performances are unpolished to be sure. I keep wondering if they are trying to model the movie on punk, in that it can be honest, wild, and unconventional and still work? The answer is...not really. His first movie was truer to this goal (i.e. the cult classic Suburbia).

In order to believe these performances, you have to believe these people are largely morons who are uncommunicative. That worked with the drugged up, emotionally volatile slackers in Suburbia...it doesn't work here. I wanted to believe this will work, but it really doesn't tell a story worth watching. Escalante should have played up the absolute absurdity of the situation for comedic effect a la real life Family Guy.

You've either got to know someone affiliated with the film, or desperately want to watch this experiment to bother with it, because it is quite bad (but the music is o.k.)
