Storyline

In a post-critical thought dumbed down world, art and theatre is outlawed. Only the bravest most rebellious artists remain. With this comes the underworld art-scene, not unlike the alcohol prohibition years of America; and like then some politicians and elites are underground art seekers in the speakeasy art scene. There are also the boldest of the bold artist that take their art to the surface with public art bombs. These art bombs are met with the full force of law for fear of free thought breaking out and the darkness of democracy returning to the world. Written by TMarkHiggins

Terrible
3 May 2006 | by defjam133See all my reviews

Congratulations, your film was so bad it actually made my feel ill to my stomach. Every single scene makes the top 10 of things that are worse than injecting boiling titanium into my thigh. If your name can be associated with this movie in any way, then i recommend you immediately tie your feet together and jump down a flight of concrete steps.

I recommend you stop making movies forthright. Perhaps you can find another outlet? Maybe knitting? Restoring classic cars? I don't care. As long as there is absolutely no chance of seeing another one of your wretched movies again.
