Critic Reviews for Ex Drummer

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (8) | Rotten (10)

  • 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.

    November 14, 2013 | Full Review…
  • The visual dexterity exhibited by Mr. Mortier, in his feature debut, and his cinematographer, Glynn Speeckaert, may keep you watching if not necessarily involved.

    March 3, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    March 1, 2011 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    August 6, 2009 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Hard to watch, and even harder to enjoy unless the music and almost pathological eccentricity takes your fancy.

    November 9, 2007 | Rating: 2/5
  • Women, gays and old people get a pretty rough ride, though given the film's minuscule target audience it shouldn't really bother them.

  • 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.

    August 12, 2008 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…
  • Visually exhilarating but also purposefully - and pointlessly - outrageous. Not for the faint hearted.

Audience Reviews for Ex Drummer

    I really dug this movie. I'm not going to go over the whole plot as this information can be found elsewhere, I just wanna say that this movie is utterly unique. Features gratuitious drugs, sex and violence, has great style and a kick ass soundtrack and I can gurantee that you haven't seen anything like it. PUNK AS FUCK.

    A writer agrees to become the drummer for a band formed by trio of handicapped lowlifes to win a Belgian battle of the bands; he ends up manipulating them into destruction. The movie is explained through Dries? confession when he agrees to join the band as their celebrity drummer: "I want to step outside my happy world. Descend into the depths of stupidity, ugliness, obtuseness, unfaithfulness? Latch onto the life of losers, but without belonging to that world and in the knowledge that I can always return to my own world." In other words, it's socioeconomic tourism among the disadvantaged, GUMMO with Eurotrash subbed in for poor white trash: the underclasses do the craziest things, like constantly rape each other and neglect their children until the tykes chomp down on excrement from hunger. Who wouldn't want to enter such a world for ninety minutes, aside from most film-goers? The soundtrack is the main draw.

    Now here's a film. Like Gasper Noe directing Trainspotting with characters for Funny Games. Stylish and brutal, this is a consistently entertaining film with great music and excellent performances. A film I'll definitely be revisiting many more times.
