Pseudo Hip Indie Trash
12 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the kind of art school garbage that people pretend to like because it's so bad. Everyone, and I mean everyone, in attendance at AFI had their minds boggled at how this even got into the festival. It's terribly pretentious and the director who spoke there came across as just as just what his film was, full of more sh*t than a whale with no ass.

On a side note, the only reason this film even got into festivals was because of the director's "relationship" with Gus van Sant.

Shame on the festivals without the integrity to see this film for what it really was: a shameless exploitation of a celebrity who passed away years ago.
