Ex Drummer Reviews

Chris Norris
Film Comment Magazine

One of the film's greatest strengths is its rendering of punk's style, sound, and seedy milieu, showing in explicit detail how lost souls might redeem themselves in one explosive half-hour in the spotlight.

The visual dexterity exhibited by Mr. Mortier, in his feature debut, and his cinematographer, Glynn Speeckaert, may keep you watching if not necessarily involved.

The flashy adaptation of the book by aging Belgian provocateur Herman Brusselmans is as systematically offensive and boisterously vulgar as its degenerate punk protagonists. Or at least that's the aim.

A thoroughly offensive and often hilarious punk requiem about rape, murder, violence, kinky sex, drugs, destruction, bad manners and rock 'n' roll -- not necessarily in that order.

Film Threat

One of those rare films that still manages to haunt you long after you leave the theatre, for people who like that kind of thing.

Hard to watch, and even harder to enjoy unless the music and almost pathological eccentricity takes your fancy.

Women, gays and old people get a pretty rough ride, though given the film's minuscule target audience it shouldn't really bother them.

A violent and self-conscious exercise in punk nihilism.

Bizarre, horribly violent and frequently brilliant black comedy from Belgium.

Visually exhilarating but also purposefully - and pointlessly - outrageous. Not for the faint hearted.

November 9, 2007

The film, so desperate in its attempts to shock the viewer through showing the dark side of humanity, is crippled by the fact that the characters are so thinly drawn they have no depth to them.

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

A punk film in more ways than one, Ex Drummer is sordid, relentlessly nihilistic and extremely violent, but it's also impressively directed and unlike anything else you'll see this year.

Ex Drummer is a mess of a film, a tawdry, bizarre tale that has enough visual style to set it apart, barely, from being a complete waste of several hours of your life.

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

Because of the continuous barrage of swear words, bloody violence and explicit sex, distribution beyond its home country will be difficult, but industry professionals should all note the director's name, however: M-O-R-T-I-E-R.
