dc.description.abstractThe recent film "Garage Days" begins with budding rock star Freddy (Kick Gurry) enlivening sex with his girlfriend Tanya (Pia Miranda) with fantasies of singing an AC/DC number to adoring hordes. Anthony Griffis has a similar fantasy and repeats it often throughout "Air Guitar". The Rolling Stones come to him cap in hand, asking if he will replace Mick Jagger, who's sick, or doing something else: Griffis fills Jagger's shoes with aplomb, the crowds adore him as much as they adored the old singer, and he gets to sing 'Let's Spend the Night Together' et al. with 'Keef' by his side and Charlie pounding away nonchalantly behind him. Griffis sets up the scenario and follows it to its climax almost pornographically.en
