About the Movie
Every Tuesday night, radio talk show host Stevie Bricks invites his listeners to call in and share their stories. And tonight, Ron Welz is ready to share his. But it doesn't take long for Ron's past to catch up with him. And when someone starts sending him body parts, his life begins to fall apart. Who is tormenting him? His insolent high school student? His best friend? His wife? There are eight million people in New York, and everyone's a suspect. Take dark comedy, mix it with noir, add a dash of horror and stir in some melodrama, and you have the recipe for one of the most original and unusual movies of the year.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Applesauce, Onur Tukel's latest and most accomplished microbudget exercise in cynical absurdism, throws dismembered body parts into a couple of amicable marriages and charts the resultant explosions as paranoia runs rampant.
Rotten: Multi-hyphenate Onur Tukel returns to the Tribeca fest with his seventh feature, a comedy so dark that only minimal humor alleviates the film's dour perspective.
Fresh: Applesauce is an uncomfortable watch that is blisteringly funny.
Fresh: Applesauce mixes genres (here, a revenge fantasy meets a relationship drama) to create a brightly amusing catalogue of stupid human tricks that doesn't fit neatly into any niche.
