Posted 27 Jun 2014 in General News

Chances are you’re probably familiar with Fred Durst for his role as the frontman of Limp Bizkit. Now, you may or may not find Limp Bizkit to your liking, but there’s no denying the fact that Durst is skilled at developing a loyal following and deserves respect for at least that. With that mindset active, check out the following short film directed by Durst, The Truth:

Fred Durst

Fred Durst delivers a good performance.

If you can’t take 30 minutes to watch the film, it centers on the life of an evangelist by the name of Evan Jealous (get it?!). The protagonist finds himself centered in the whirlwind of religious practice, despite not showing any particular affinity towards religion himself. In many ways, this is reminiscent of Durst’s own life, in which his relationship to religion and the people that identified with his mother’s church were tested over time. Perhaps this is why Durst can play the character so well. The film also features appearances by Mike Vallely and Wes Borland. All in all, the film proves that Fred Durst is a multitalented fellow, even if his artistic output may not be to the highest caliber. However, you have to admire the effort, and the film is interesting in its own right.
