"Total Badass is both a portrait of life on the artistic and social fringe and a thriller... a cross of Frederick Wiseman and Hunter S. Thompson."
-The New York Times

TOTAL BADASS is an insanely funny and wickedly debaucherous new documentary about crime, sex, art, drugs, music and life in the Austin underground.

"The title couldn't be more apt."
-Time Out New York

"Total Badass is a wild, unique ride, deep into the Austin counterculture...  it's entertaining and shockingly funny, and undeniably touching...  a thunderbolt of a documentary."
  -Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

"[Total Badass director] Bob Ray is Austin's newish lowbrow Maysles brother...   Chad Holt comes off charmingly as equal parts Texan Keith Moon and crispy Richard Benjamin, talking blue streaks and rolling joints in his probation officer's parking lot."
  -Village Voice

"A ballsy feature-length documentary... a totally unapologetic profile of the ubiquitous Austin hero."
-Vice Magazine

"A psychological treat"
-Phoenix New Times

"An outrageous and hilariously seedy journey into the Austin underground...  Total Badass bravely goes where no documentary film has gone before."
"genuinely funny and touching"
-Monday Magazine

"Holt comes across like a lost John Waters' collaborator, or like a real-life version of Nicolas Cage in Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans. This is Hunter S. Thompson-style guerrilla funmaking at its deranged best."
-Austin Chronicle

"Total Badass is everything you've heard it is and more.  It's easily the best documentary that I've seen this year. Total Badass is massively entertaining to watch, it thoroughly delivers on the promise of its title, and the ending comes together so well, in fact, that I initially believed that it might have been staged."
-The National Examiner
