“Total Badass is both a portrait of life on the artistic and social fringe and a thriller...
a working-poor man’s cross of Frederick Wiseman and Hunter S. Thompson.“
-The New York TImes

“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

“[Total Badass] is a rough film, and that's a good thing: 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.”
-Austin Chronicle

“Holt is a modern day Texas punk rock version of a Kerouac character; speeding through life on whatever fuels him
in a non-stop flurry of writing, drug dealing, singing, stage diving, love making, and guinea pig raising.”

-Austin Daze
