Very strange stuff
1 July 2017 | by Wizard-8See all my reviews

A movie like "Punk Vacation" is in some ways difficult to rate, and in some ways even more difficult to describe. Made with what was obviously an extremely low budget, the movie is quite often shoddy in nature. Linking footage is missing, plot points are quite often vague to completely incomprehensible, the characters are more often than not thinly written, and production values are next to non existent. Normally all of this would make a movie really bad and easy to dismiss. But it's directed in a very weird manner that gets you curious enough to stay with it until the end credits. There's more often than not a surreal feeling at times, a bizarre feeling like the filmmakers were making things up as they went along. It seems at times to be made by individuals who only had a vague understanding of normal human behaviour and how a story should be plotted out. While I don't think I can give the movie a general recommendation, I think there is a small minority who might find the movie strange and incompetent enough to be worth their while. If what I have told about the movie intrigues you, it might be up your alley.
