About the Movie

An aging comedian tours the California desert, lost in a cycle of third-rate venues, novelty tourist attractions, and vain attempts to reach his estranged daughter. By day, he slogs through the barren landscape, inadvertently alienating every acquaintance. At night, he seeks solace in the animation of his onstage persona. Fueled by the promise of a lucrative Hollywood engagement and the possibility of rekindling a relationship with his daughter, he trudges through a series of increasingly surreal and volatile encounters.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: I left this barbed portrait of a cracking-up comic with more than a little respect for its fearless director, Rick Alverson, and his trusting star, Gregg Turkington. You can't deny that they're a match made in heaven. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, Nov 12, 2015

Fresh: Alverson's fourth feature is singular stuff, and it reconfirms the director as one of the truly bold voices in the all-too-homogenous U.S. indie film scene. – Scott Foundas, Variety, Oct 26, 2015

Fresh: There's a chic emptiness to "Entertainment," undoubtedly, and anti-comedy constructs that may rub the wrong way, but there's also a spiky intelligence at work too, one that engages through the artifice of disengagement and the illusion of "performance." – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, Nov 19, 2015

Rotten: Despite its apparently sincere identification with its protagonist, Entertainment feels like a sick joke. – John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter, Oct 26, 2015

Wow

A surreal, hypnotic, funny and altogether singular film.

Exquisite.

The only movie I haven't walked out of this year. Warning: If you like movies being made these days, you probably won't like this one.

Mind Blown
