Storyline

Roger, a Rasputin-like drifter, is in search of the ultimate indie-rock band, The Transcendents. What he finds is less than transcendent: a band who has all but abandoned society, a host of unpleasant memories, and more questions than answers in search of his own existential fulfillment. Set in the Wonderland of America's Do-it-Yourself music scene, The Transcendents is a dark comedic fairytale that straddles the line between the absurd and the all too real. Written by Anonymous

Really Interesting
7 January 2019 | by louiseparilloSee all my reviews

I saw this at a hostel in Krakow. I don't know "who", "how", or "why" it was being shown, but I do know i love Kathy Valentine from the Go Go's who is one of the stars in it. So I watched. And I continued to watch. It was fantastic.

I think this film is for "smokers". I'm not into that stuff, but the movie is beautiful with sober eyes regardless. The last 30 minutes are INCREDIBLY MOVING. The movie tricks you by getting you to think it's about the main guy, Roger, when in fact it's about the main girl, Kim. (Both really good actors in this movie). It also tricks you by getting you to think it's a rock n roll story about a band when it's really about overcoming your past and confronting the people who have hurt you. The film has these long monologues by certain characters lull you into a trance. (Hence why I think it's for "smokers").

Is it out back home in the states yet? Or did I just lose my mind in Poland? The American stuff you find while traveling abroad is hilarious. ANYWAY, I recommend the movie. A lot. So cool seeing Kathy Valentine act!
