What makes DSBD interesting is the way it allows the younger generation to relive an era that gave birth to several mediums/genres of comedy as we know them today as well as provide a chance to reminiscent for those who experienced the movement in person. It consists of appearances by actors (Kevin Bacon, Chevy Chase), writers, illustrators, comics, and all who helped shape National Lampoon. With unseen footage, notes and interviews this documentary creates a complete experience that every National Lampoon fan would cherish. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Douglas Triola (writer, director) has done his homework.
So if you are a fan of National Lampoon or just want to experience their journey, Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead is one documentary you don't wanna miss. Oh and as a fair warning, this movie is not for kids and please watch it without the company of anyone who's related to you, to avoid being embarrassed. Moments of gratuitous graphic nudity guaranteed.
