Maybe the problem is that everyone expected the Kevin Smith "formula", which is great fun, and probably the reason we all watched this to begin with. But this is very different.
I think it was a very brave human study and I hope Bryan Johnson has more for us.
Just remember...Nobody said it was a comedy!
And Kevin....thanks for helping with this!
I originally got the movie because it had Kevin Smith's name on it (I love his movies), however, be warned this movie is nothing like Kevin Smith's movies, it is in a class all by itself. I have to say Vulgar is my FAVORITE movie. It made me think a lot about society, crime, our justice system, and revenge. This movie changed me in a way I can't describe and I recommend it to anyone over the age of 18.
That said, I was quite impressed. I rented it not really knowing what to expect; I mean, the only View Askew works I'd seen thus far were Kevin Smith's, but I could tell this would not be the same comedy fare just by looking at the cover. I think it's important that you do not expect to laugh while watching this movie; there are a handful of funny scenes, but that's not really what Vulgar is about.
Brian O'Halloran gives an amazing performance in this movie; I don't think many actors would be brave enough to take on the role of Flappy/Vulgar. For the most part, all the actors are very believable, which is necessary in a film portraying a reality this stark. The cinematography was superb, and the script was well-thought out and solid. Some of the sets were a little drab and lackluster, but I won't hold that against it... hey, it's an indie film.
All that said, Vulgar is a twistedly brilliant film, but it's not for the faint of heart. The final 10 minutes of the film really had my blood pumping - kept me guessing. I recommend you rent it first and test the waters before you buy it.

This is the darkest of the View Askew movies. However, if you are familiar with the characters it makes it a lot more bearable. Read morePublished 8 months ago by TATE SNEDEKER

I'm a fan of comic book men on AMC and the Tell Em Steve Dave podcast. I was very curious about this DVD. It's not what I thought it was going to be. Read morePublished 20 months ago by emcee_square
