Still: Ex Drummer

Ex Drummer

9 Nov 200725 Nov 2007

A brutal Belgian blast of raw punk energy and surprisingly sophisticated filmmaking style. Three 'handicapped' misfit musicians enlist a semi-famous writer to be drummer in their band, although he's more interested in turning them into a down-and-dirty story than a successful group.

Director Koen Mortier brings jet-black humour to this bleak tale, pushing sex and violence to the extreme in a film that brings surprise, danger and nausea back to the cinema.
