Awful. Just awful.
17 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this short yesterday at the Sundance Film Festival, and let me just say, this could possibly be the worst thing that I have ever viewed on the big screen. This abbreviated look at an upcoming documentary about Bunker Spreckels, a teenage surfing phenom turned millionaire party boy who died at age 27 in 1977, is like a poorly thought out Hunter S. Thompson vignette. In it we get to see Bunker surfing, smoking, big game hunting, parading around in tight jeans, and yes, urinating (full frontal, now that's art!). The score (if you could call it that) is straight from a bad 1950's sci-fi movie, and the psychedelic video effects are just pointless.
