Mo and Dustin Schaffer have been trying to have the summer of their lives for several years now, but it always ends in failure because their metal band never wins the battle of the bands or because their small town never provides any adventure.
Mo is desperate to leave, preferably for Berlin to record an album in a renowned studio with Brian Eno, while Dustin is content to stick around and work in the family biz, a concrete-leveling company called Mudjackin’. The murder-mystery at the center involves Mo's online pen pal (they exchange audio recordings of marital & roommate fights through a website called Henpecked.org) and a gang of movie-making Neo-Nazi’s, who cast Dustin in their horror film as a bumbling comic character.
Stunningly constructed almost as one long montage, Mudjackin’ packs in more detail and story points than any indie in recent memory. Written and directed by Christopher Good, it’s an unbelievably kinetic romp, a one-of-a-kind debut film. I’ve watched it three times and I’m still picking up new details & trying to piece everything together. A rare micro-budget feature where the camera never stops tracking and the ideas never stop flowing, an anthem for the restless. Wilson Vance as Mo and Jimmy Darrah as Dustin are completely endearing in the leads. (87 minutes) Written, Directed, Produced, Shot, Edited by Christopher Good. Produced by Megan Mantia.
