Made to feed his ego
25 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

Right from the beginning, I could tell what kind of movie this was going to be- another boring, over-the-top, trying too hard to be different, hipster documentary. It starts out with what seems to be a very sad, grown man, complaining about his girlfriend that he broke up with 2 years ago. Kitty is framed by Hot Sugar as a mean, stuck up ex; while Hot Sugar is framed as the innocent victim who was just trying to make things work. It was so clear that he is still bitter about their breakup- which is fine, but I don't want to watch an hour long movie about a bitter and depressed man that does nothing to better himself except complain more. The movie starts to switch focus onto his music- what I was waiting for the entire first half of the movie-, but it ends up getting even more boring. It becomes long shots of him staring off into the distance unemotionally(maybe they were trying to lengthen it so it would be considered a real movie). The thing I find the funniest is that they try framing him as some sort of musical genius, as if he created the entire techno/dubstep/electro genre- he's just another Tumblr famous guy who somehow gained a following for being "unique". It's a joke. Next time, create a documentary on a musician who actually changed things. Just don't watch it- save yourself the time. Maybe take a yoga class or learn to knit, do something good for yourself- just don't watch this waste of time.
