The Road of Excess is a film about toxic masculinity, mental health, addiction, fame and what happens when it’s gone. The film explores these pitfalls of notoriety and celebrity through the eyes of Matt Pritchard, the star of MTV’s UK “Jackass” clone; “Dirty Sanchez,” as he attempts to row the Atlantic Ocean. In many ways, the row is a metaphor for Pritchard’s life of excess. Everything he does, he does to the extreme. He doesn’t know any other way. This reality manifests itself on film as a raw, exposed human mind with no filters. It’s a harrowing journey both on the ocean and into Pritchard’s inner world. The Road of Excess explores what an immense physical and emotional challenge can teach us about finding peace and purpose.
