Benny Rocks!
13 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just saw "Benny Bliss & The Disciples Of Greatness" at the Downbeach Film Festival in Atlantic City and I haven't laughed this hard in a long time. As soon as I left the theater all I wanted to do is throw my cell phone in the ocean. This film about anti-technology is very entertaining and also makes you think about where we are as a society. Yvonne Delarosa is hilarious in the role of Maria and the band and music slam! It has a great indie spirit and cult vibe that reminds me of "Napolean Dynamite" and has a kind of "Blues Brothers" feel to it. But it's really like nothing I've ever seen before. Highly original comedy. The director Martin Guigui also acts in the film playing a wacky character named Harry Fingers. I usually don't like director's that act, but Guigui is convincing and very funny. The star of the film Courtney Gains and the Director did a Q&A after the screening and mentioned that all the music is live to film. That blew me away. I hear it will be distributed worldwide soon. I think about this film almost every time my cell phone rings.
