Goliath features some genuinely brilliant moments.

A weird little film with slow pacing, an increasingly and uncomfortably unsympathetic main character, and little interest.

Audience Reviews for Goliath

Other than the painfully slow pacing, I really enjoyed this film. It's quintessential IFC stuff, with all the characteristics and charm that we've come to expect from independently produced comedies. Fascinatingly odd.

This proved to be a most annoying film, about a man with anger issues whose life is spiraling out of control. David Zellner wrote, directed, and starred in this film, and plays the main (unnamed) character with a quietly simmering rage that often boils over in inappropriate behavior. Rather than feel sympathy, one feels that he has been the architect of his reduced circumstances. The acting from the supporting cast is amateurish and the lines are often delivered in an emotionless monotone. The cat, who one would expect to have a central role, is seen only in photographs, or in a lifeless cameo. At eighty minutes, the film seemed a lot longer, and this viewer suffered through to the end, only to be disappointed by a needlessly violent attack on a helpless victim whose guilt only existed in the main character's mind. A most unpleasant experience.

Exudes a most bizarre deadpan charm in its tale of a man and his missing cat.
