I watched the trailer about the life of Sailor Jerry and was pretty underwhelmed but, alas, I'm a sucker for free movie screenings at the Roxie. Let me just say this: don't judge a movie by its trailer. Unless it is for Hot Tub Time Machine. This movie is full of batshit insane old-timers cursing their way into their 90s and provides an interesting take on a WWII subculture (booze, legal prostitution and, of course, tattoos) that it is hard not to love it. Sounds a lot like Capp Street circa 2009.
Anyways, one interesting thing I learned that Ed Hardy lives and actively works in San Francisco. That's right. The Ed Hardy; the boy that sold his work to fist-pumpers everywhere. Local hero!
The movie is playing again tonight at The Roxie. You can RSVP (required) here for free.
