“The History of Future Folk” Movie Review

Starring: Nils d’Aulaire and Jay Klaitz as a alien bluegrass band that plays in NYC

This quirky little film from director John Mitchell revolves around Bill Hunt and his bandmate Kevin, who also happen to be aliens from the planet Hondo. Their backstory is funny, and what really makes them film enjoyable is the premise.

The film sets up the mythology of the planet Hondo in the form of a fairy-tale of sorts when Bill Hunt explains the story of Hondo to his young daughter. Little do we know that, SURPRISE, Hondo is all too real and Bill is really General Trius. He has been playing bluegrass music in bars in New York City. The story really picks up with the arrival of another Hondonian.

If this hasn’t sold you yet, how about a cameo by Dee Snider of Twisted Sister fame to give legitimacy of how Rock’N’Roll this movie is!

All the songs in The History of Future Folk are so funny, and just as quirky as the movie itself and endearing as hell. If you want to laugh, hear great songs and latch on to quirky characters, I highly recommend The History of Future Folk!
