    The man, the legend, the god. Neil Breen is responsible for some of the greatest feats in cinema history. Here are his masterpieces abridged.





    Personal favorite is Fateful Findings, though I haven't seen Pass Thru yet, still waiting on the fan supercut of that one.

    I like the one where he's hacking like 5 2003 gateway computing laptops in the back of his car.

    I had the pleasure of seeing it in a theater last May. It was pretty much a treatise on how wall street and big business are terrible and we need to be better to the planet or something. I loved it, but at least one person I overheard said it wasn't as good as Fateful Findings, which I have yet to see.

    Also the denim vest+medals from Double Down has a cameo. The audience cheered sooo much when that came on screen.

    So, on a scale of 1 to Tommy Wiseau, how to you think a Neil Breen production clicks?

    (I personally give it a 2-3: Definitely weird, but professional and upfront, in attitude.)

    As someone who's job it is to keep continuity of costumes on film, watching Fateful Findings was like being tied to a chair and beaten with jumper cables.

    Neil Breen is a wonderful gift as a modern day fight against the Big Mean Man on the Wall Street, liking to represent himself as man's personal Jesus. It's an utter to delight to see his films!

    Fateful Findings is my all time favourite, followed by Pass Thru, I am Here....Now, and then Double Down.

    His weird fetish of trashing and destroying old laptops he got off of the Craig's List is amazing and his films make for the best drinking games.

    I caught it on the Youtube and was able to see it before it got taken down. Hopefully it'll be posted up there again.

    gotta fill up the movies' run time somehow

    it's a shame they keep getting put on Youtube, though. If we want more Neil Breen, we need to support his content by buying his films

    Ahhhh Breen. One of the first "celebrities" I learned about when I started attending the KFMN.

    Even made a few promos with the man, the myth, the legend.


    The first promo made for the KFMN, waaaay back in late June.


    Made just back in December. Still, probably one of my favorites mostly because so much of it just came together accidentally.

    Yup. the KFMN actually marathoned Breen movies a couple of months ago... and because we suspected Pass Thru was gonna be pulled...


    Hope this can serve as a "thanks you" gift for putting up with us refugees.

    I think we can safely say it does that and more. It's always nice when people do the right thing and archive everything.

    Was it sad of me to find the most annoying part of the movie, for me, was that there was a spirit tiger in Nevada? Like, yeah, could've escaped from a Sigfried and Roy routine...

    Wait, were they gods the whole time?

    I mean, everything shitty like bad synching, bad acting, bad plot... it was the tiger that gritted my teeth.

    "A tiger? In Africa?"

    So I saw Pass Thru and here are my thoughts.

    I was going to write a synopsis but I only made it a paragraph before giving up. Pass Thru, like every other Breen movie, has to be seen to be fully appreciated. It has all of the "surreal" imagery and subtle political messages you'd expect from a Breen film. The major upgrade in Pass Thru is the inclusion of aerial shots from what I'm assuming is a drone Breen bought just for this film. Oh yeah, and Breen is all powerful again. The first thing his character say in the movie is, "I am artificial intelligence from far into the future. I have come here the cleanse the human species of their failings and decline..." Basically this movie is classic Breen. Though I will admit this movie was harder to follow than his other movies, he took a stab at nonlinear storytelling and it worked pretty much as well as you'd expect.

    I love the drone shot of him standing by a bunch of rocks, where the camera pans away for no reason and then pans back, over the course of about a minute. That's fucking ART.

    I want someone to make a Hatred or Postal 2 mod that replaces all the character voice clips with Pass Tru quotes.

    I actually used to eat tuna straight from the can back when I was working in newspapers... probably didn't make many friends that way.
