Flemish film directed by Koen Mortier, Ex Drummer is an underground classic of punk overkill. The film is based on a novel by Belgian author Herman Brusselmans.
Three drug-addled, misfit punk rock musicians are looking for a drummer. They approach Dries, a well known writer whose arrogant self assurance and yuppie lifestyle make him an unlikely candidate, but the fact that he can′t play the drums appeals to the band′s punk sensibility. Fascinated by these dysfunctional characters, Dries joins the group. His arrival awakens the personal disputes and family feuds latent in the band. A shocking, hardcore, blood-spattered depiction of small time rock musicians losing the plot rather than living the dream.
