Creepy, funny, yet surprisingly affecting, Miguel Arteta's darkly comic drama pulls off a remarkable balancing act.

Skirts stalker cliches and grown-up-kid-in-a-man's-body caricatures.

Do you like the clammy as opposed to the scary? Do you like dread rather than drama, anguish and emotional coagulation rather than screamfests?

Chuck & Buck might be the most perversely agreeable stalker picture ever made.

That Chuck & Buck holds attention despite -- or partly due to -- its murky, troubling central conceit can be credited to execution that's stealthy and low-key throughout.

Of all the films to premiere at Sundance 2000, there is one movie that best represented what indie film is supposed to be.

Chuck & Buck is a film which you can't quite get a fix on: it's a movie about child sex which is also as airy and sweetly likeable as anything you'll see this year.

Thought-provoking jet-black comedy that may not be for all tastes, but is well-worth seeking out.

This is a thoughtful, difficult film. See it if you are ready to be challenged.

Montreal Film Journal

Here's an odd film: a heartfelt, sweet and funny little story about a coming of age better late than never, it's also the disturbing tale of a pathetic gay sociopath and the man he stalks.

It's certain to make almost everyone in the audience squirm, either out of embarrassment for the characters or because the situation hits too close to home...

It was often painfully difficult to watch. It was never predictable, though, which is saying something.

One of the most fiercely original films about adults coping with their pasts.

This is a troubling yet rewarding film that ultimately gives us a sense of hope by showing us resolution within the confines of normal behaviour.

This weirdly comic film strips off the gloss of youthful beauty to explore the darker side of childhood and ask what happens when the wilful, needy child within refuses to grow up.
