He Never Died (2015)

Henry Rollins is inspirational person to me. I wouldn't go so far as say role model but that would be close. From his first interview I have found him to be very inspirational. I will never be able to live up to his standards. He is not best at anything he does but he keeps on doing what he likes and saying clever things doing it. He has shown how hard work can get you far.

Henry Rollins is starring He Never Died. He was reason why I watched it. I don't regret it. Movie has problems and some of my liking may be liking Henry Rollins but I like it. Henry Rollins is immortal who is tired of all social situations. When he tries to be social he don't know how to be.  He is not only anti-social, he don't care about anything and he turns out to be crazy.

He Never Dies follows only Henry Rollins. At times it provides great black humor while other times it feel boring art movie. At beginning Rollins' interaction feels hilarious. At middle movie start to drag. We start to learn what Rollins really is. Then things start to resolve and movie becomes interesting again.

He Never Died is tagged as horror movie. Is it depends how you define horror movies. It has elements of horror movie but it doesn't use them like horror movies do. Henry Rollins' acting may feel weird but by the end you understand why he is like he is. They went all out to make his character be like someone in his situation without thinking too much about if the movie is entertaining. Sometimes this work better sometimes worse. If you compare this to movie like Machinist, which also has quite extreme main character, this one doesn't have as interesting mystery.
