What are people saying?

  • Samuel T.'s rating of the film Bald Dog Rock

    Re-view. Boasting numerous live performances sure to send tingles down Kaurismäki's spine, at the core, this is a story of artistic perseverance and societal convolution. I can't quite tell if it's a parody, and frankly I don't care. Rock n' Roll, loose girls, grit, ass crack scratching, moustaches, corruption, a dog incinerator, and a plethora of quotes from the likes of Zappa, Miles, Muddy, Beefheart, Ringo... 4.5
