A lot of people are going to hear about this movie
14 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just saw the world premiere of "Punk Like Me" at SXSW. I hadn't planned on going until I met Rich and Amy earlier in the week. They were friendly and fun, so I added it to my list.

Okay, so maybe it helps that I'm the same age as the guys in Carne Asada, but "Punk Like Me" really struck a chord with me. I think it was its rock video/spring break/adolescent male fantasy fulfillment combination that stirred up all those long filed-away "I wanna rock'n'roll all night" dreams. Who among us wouldn't have wanted the opportunafish to be rock gods for a summer? On top of the provocative subject matter, Rich's stories about his adolescent fantasies of rock stardom (that so many of us have, at one time, harbored) his life today, his wife and child did a great job of setting the stage in the audience's mind that, "Holy smoke! He may just be able to pull this off!"

I give a huge tip of the hat to the Editor of this film who not only assembled a compelling story but set and maintained the correct pace throughout the material. Honest, solid work. No seizure-inducing silliness. Everyone involved with this film should give her a big sloppy kiss.

This doc might be the "Murderball" of 2006. Everyone left the theater abuzz. I won't be surprised AT ALL if it wins an Award at SXSW.
