The film gets more woolly and unfocused; many scenes feel improvised and only occasionally hit their marks.
All the controlled substances in the world couldn't improve a viewing of the execrable "Don Peyote," a tedious, incoherent look at a paranoid stoner's emotional and spiritual unraveling.
You feel as if, at any moment, anything could happen. The problem is, seemingly everything does.
... an incoherent series of hallucination sequences that are neither amusing nor visually compelling.
It sounds dickish and empty to call Don Peyote indulgent, but the film feels so personal that it never connects to any universal feelings of panic on the part of its character or, by extension, Fogler.
Unfortunately, Don Peyote - for all its freakout ambitions, bizarre visuals, and copious, relentless WTF moments - doesn't quite stick.
The most surprising thing about this comedy is that it's not very funny, but then it's not meant to be. This is a trippy odyssey into the mind of a drug-addled guy who thinks the world is falling apart around him.
Should he direct again, it is possible he will create a film worthy of his talent, and worth watching. Don Peyote, however, is as big a bust as the apocalypse of December 2012.
To write that this is the most appealing Fogler has been on-screen to date doesn't mean much, but as scattergun, super-freak-out cinema goes, Don Peyote is almost patiently weird enough to work.
