One Hell of a Ride

Last night I was fortunate enough to go see my first Sundance movie, Hell Ride. Basically, the name says it all.

The film is about two rival biker gangs - the Six-Six-Sixers and the Pistoleros - who are waging an all out biker war upon eachother. Their crazy antics include everything from burning each other alive, to bar fights, to peyote trips, to desert burials. Needless to say the three B's of motorcycle gangs were fullfilled: Bikes, Beer and Broads (not the actual word).

All-in-all it was a great movie. Larry Bishop, Michael Madsen and Dennis Hopper were all there to answer questions. I'm pretty sure Michael Madsen was drunk. He had his shirt part way tucked in and had the classic drunk look going on.

Vinnie Jones, also known as Bullet Tooth Tony, was in the movie as Billy Wings, the ring leader of the Six-Six-Sixers. He used a freaky air gun/crossbow which reminded me of the creepy weapon Anton Chigurh used in No Country for Old Men.

If you are looking to see a future cult classic before it goes mainstream, go see this movie. Whatever you do, don't take your mom.

Dude, I ran into Larry Bishop at the Music Cafe and got to chat with him a little. He was really cool after we took two pictures together he said we should take a third one. Also after we took the pictures he wanted to know my take on the crowd in Salt Lake because as he said "that was the best crowd" I told him the crowd was mostly regular joes from Salt Lake who like a good biker flick. He was glad to hear it, because as he said again "that was a great crowd"
