Wow, it feels like forever since we reviewed a movie…regardless, let’s dive right in!
Just before we kick off for the holidays, we were given the chance to check out Mock and Roll, a brand new mockumentary film that is creating all kinds of buzz on the independent festival circuit. Mock and Roll tells the story of the upcoming band Liberty Mean, who specializes in parody music dedicated to the American rock band the Black Owls. The members of Liberty Mean fall into shinanigan after shenanigans as they try to raise enough money to create a professional recording and perform at one of the United States’s biggest festivals, South by Southwest. The adventures only become more ridiculous as the film goes on, The creators behind the film were even able to reach out to Roger Earl, the drummer of Foghat, to cameo alongside them in the film!
We are incredibly happy that we were given the chance to check out Mock and Roll. We hadn’t heard of the film before, despite it winning multiple awards such as best picture and best original score on the festival circuit. Mock and Roll is definitely a fun ride through and through, even if it becomes a bit of a ridiculous mess towards the end. We have a few stylistic changes that we would like to make, otherwise, this is a fantastic example of good independent filmmaking.
