  • Summary: Three drug-addled, misfit punk rock musicians are looking for a drummer. They approach Dries, a well known writer whose arrogant self assurance and yuppie lifestyle make him an unlikely candidate, but the fact that he can′t play the drums appeals to the band′s punk sensibility.Three drug-addled, misfit punk rock musicians are looking for a drummer. They approach Dries, a well known writer whose arrogant self assurance and yuppie lifestyle make him an unlikely candidate, but the fact that he can′t play the drums appeals to the band′s punk sensibility. Fascinated by these dysfunctional characters, Dries joins the group. His arrival awakens the personal disputes and family feuds latent in the band. A shocking, hardcore, blood-spattered depiction of small time rock musicians losing the plot rather than living the dream. (Palisades Tartan) Expand

    This grungy anti-musical will offend just about everyone with its attitude towards women, gays, kids, and the elderly.

    The flashy adaptation of the book by aging Belgian provocateur Herman Brusselmans is as systematically offensive and boisterously vulgar as its degenerate punk protagonists.

    As the not-so-comic violence and the violent, misogynistic sex pile up, it becomes the kind of black humor in which the joke is largely on the audience.

    Signaling a new low in post-modern smug superiority, Ex Drummer tries to pass off contempt as comedy and slanted lensing as creativity.

    Interesting and musical. Not bad at all.
