I don't know whether I'm jaded by attending one too many goth clubs or what, but this girl and her problems are in every bar across California. I really didn't feel like Ani Kyd sold her story that well because her back story felt made-up and cliché for such a traumatizing experience. She's over-thinking the entire concept of love, and she doesn't seem like she would be in a porn at all, let alone be a "porn queen." Another problem I had was with Jello Biafra and why he was probably in this short film: to sell his new band and get acting credentials on this website. I understand why he was basically the same character in the movie for two roles, but he's the kind of face/personality that basically takes over any production with his larger-than-life persona, leaving all of the story and others characters to suffer. It's no longer a student film but rather "The Jello Biafra Show." The music was a bit heavy in almost every scene, feeling almost like someone with an iPod trying to force you to listen to everything on their personal playlist. I give the story some respect; I'm sure it happens in porn-stars lives that they have to deal with love in their own way. The indie nature of the film was admirable, too, and much respect should be shown to the crew and Nardwuar for filming a bit of behind-the-scenes on his YouTube channel for this film (or I would have never seen it). When it was over, though, I felt bombarded with this girl's emotional issues and feelings of confusion due to Jello's acting choices. It's worth a watch if you like Nardwuar, Jello Biafra, or the indie effort, but it's a tad below average in my opinion.
