Movie Reviews

Extremely Enjoyable
T. Lake | 04/17/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I really enjoyed this film. It captures some awesome performances, some hillarious moments, and some performances that need to be seen/heard to be believed. Anyone who has sat a half hour through a band they didn't like will find this film refreshing. You don't like the band thats playing now? wait 2 minutes and laugh your way through it. There is no guessing what the next band will bring.
I really liked the whole feel of the film, everyone involved seemed very connected to eachother, and to the scene/enviroment they created. I felt echoes of my own town's local noise scene throughout. I would highly reccomend getting the film, getting some friends over, and watching the strangest show you've ever seen."
"Punch Yourself in the Crotch as Hard as you Can"

"The only bad thing about Sean Carnage's rockumentary/ performance experiment is the feeling of regret you'll have that you didn't get to participate in this totally insane evening. 40 bands each given 2 minutes to perform- and these groups are some of the strangest you're likely to see in one sitting. Unsung luminaries like Whitman, Captain Ahab, and Gowns give (presumably) their feature film debuts while all kinds of other chaos ensues- including a man making a sandwich with his feet! Captures the fun and oddity of a night with the new weird underground, as well as providing a useful document/primer for anybody going to L.A. who likes bands on labels like Wantage, Load, and Bulb."
