review by
Mike Haberfelner

Hex-Man D-Lord is a minor celebrity in the local poetry slam scene, and he thinks he's good enough to participate and even win the prestigious Ultra States Poetry Slam - if only he can beat rather intimidating fellow poet The Groove (Joe Maurer). Then out of the blue, Julius (Glenn Berggoetz) shows up at Hex-Man's house, and tells him he's utter shit! But he's a poetry slam guru, so he can help Hex-Man make it to the top, to not create poetry with his mind or heart but with his gut - but despite all of Julius' best efforts, it seems Hex-Man is just too caught up in his own mindset to change his way of thinking - and creating of course. Then one day, Hex-Man meets his number one fan, Chelsea (Kary Gall), and the two fall in love immediately - and Hex-Man's poetry suffers gravely, as instead of writing about his inner turmoil, he writes about unicorns and rainbows, and all in a not very creative way. And when he has an informal poetry stand-off with The Groove, The Groove laughs him off the premises. So is all lost, or is there a slim chance that Chelsea, the love of Hex-Man's life, will dump him soon? ...

 

Basically, this is a charming little comedy that will sure hit a nerve with all those who feel a bit weirded out by the more eccentric participants of poetry slams, while at the same time it's un-offensive enough to maybe strike a chord with poetry slam afficionados with an actual sense of humour. What really makes this movie though is its witty writing that allows for many an unexpected plottwist and many a hilarious situation. And of course, a very solid cast doesn't hurt one bit either to make this a rather enjoyable little movie.
