Movie Info

The ultimate slacker filmmaker just might be Austin's Bob Ray, responsible for the indie productions "Hell on Wheels," about women's roller derby, and "Rock Opera," a weed-infused little goodie about the Austin rocker scene. He's also been at the helm of numerous animations and good-time music videos, such as "Platypus Rex's Clone Whores" and "Night of the Kung Fu Zombie Bastards from Hell!" Anyone with a High Times magazine nomination for Best Stoner Film is alright by us. Ray and his CrashCam Films are always a highlight at the prestigious SXSW festival, and his latest cinematic adventure to screen at the fest is "Total Badass: A Film by Bob Ray about the Life and Times of Chad Holt." We quote from the film's web page: "an insanely funny and wickedly debaucherous new documentary about crime, sex, drugs, music and life in the Austin underground." (They had us at "insanely.") -- (C) Official Site

A case study in the limitations of raw.

A working-poor man's cross of Frederick Wiseman and Hunter S. Thompson

Holt comes off charmingly as equal parts Texan Keith Moon and crispy Richard Benjamin, talking blue streaks and rolling joints in his probation officer's parking lot, but Ray obviously foresaw the man's spiral from gutter to abyss.

A comic/tragic closeup of the type of extreme scenester -- doesn't every city have one? -- who has transformed his life into a reckless form of performance art.
