Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: The film's unvarying lack of drama or direction can be wearing, but the schlubby originality of its subject fully repays the longueurs.
Fresh: By turns robustly amusing and wistfully melancholy.
Fresh: Eddie Pepitone, perhaps the funniest stand-up comedian you've never heard of, gets a deserving close-up in the amusing, freewheeling documentary "The Bitter Buddha."
Fresh: This loving portrait of the angst-ridden comedian should well lift his profile.
Wonderfully honest doc about one of my favorite comics. Bravo to Feinartz for capturing Eddie's essence in such full, soulful dimension.
Great Movie! Eddie is hilarious
Just a matter of time before everyone else finds out how funny Eddie is. Great movie, classic story of chasing your dreams despite all the people who tell you, you are crazy-as if crazy is a bad thing.
Phenomenal Comedy Doc
Saw this on the festival circuit, its hysterical, its touching and its interesting, really recommended!
