About the Movie
“Burt’s Buzz” takes an intimate look at the world of Burt Shavitz, the face and co-founder of Burt’s Bees, exploring his fascinating and unique life. Wise and wry, ornery and opinionated, the reclusive Shavitz is committed to living off the land and keeping true to his humble beginnings despite his celebrity status. The film chronicles Burt’s life as a photographer, beekeeper, and brand spokesman, following his complicated relationship with the company, his fans, and the world around him. Exposing the collision between business and personal values, “Burt’s Buzz” is a compelling and fascinating portrait of this highly idiosyncratic pioneer, and a revealing study of what it means to be a living icon.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The film leaves the impression that it's telling the version of its subject's life that he wants us to hear.
Fresh: A certain hirsute fellow in an engineer's cap, the one whose enigmatic kisser graces the Burt's Bees logo, is, it turns out, the real deal. And he's more of a character than any marketing guru could invent.
Fresh: When a cadre of screaming fans in fake beards and bee costumes greet Burt at a Taiwan airport, it's impossible not to marvel at his strange existence.
Fresh: Shapiro (How to Start Your Own Country) lets the story play out in a meandering fashion that echoes Shavitz's approach to life.
Answers the question, "Is there really a Burt" in a way that was described by a person who has travelled extensively with Burt over the past decade as "the most accurate representation of what he's really like". Perfectly balances and celebrates his eccentricities, his principles, and his priorities. An interesting story, well told.
Very simple and well put together. I loved this film. Burt makes me happy. This film makes you think about your own life. Simplicity is an amazing thing. Sometimes you just wanna smell the roses.
Not as good as the trailer
I love documentaries, but this one was boring and predictable. Just watch the trailer, you can get the whole story in two minutes.
