Critic Reviews for It Came from Kuchar
A lively little doc that might just do for you what it did for me -- provide a welcome introduction and an amusing education.
Kroot's film, with assists from interview subjects like John Waters, Buck Henry, Wayne Wang, Guy Maddin and Atom Egoyan, makes a compelling case not so much for the Kuchars' movies, exactly, as for their independent spirit.
The movie makes the case that the best American filmmakers may be the uncelebrated ones who helplessly turn life into art simply as a means to get out of bed every day.
In any case, the documentary is interesting as a human story. And anyone who loves the Kuchar brothers' films or underground cinema in general will take extra pleasure in it.
The portrait that emerges is affectionate and fascinating. The brothers themselves are un-self-consciously talkative, unassumingly odd and frequently very funny.
Audience Reviews for It Came from Kuchar
Holly crazy eyebrows Batman, how have I not heard of Kuchar before?
Now I'm really into cult movies-- I kind of see myself as an authority on them. So the fact that I've never heard of the Kuchar brothers until I watched this documentary made me realize that I was missing out on some genuinely absurd underground cinema. This doc simply serves to point out that these filmmakers existed. There really isn't any conflict, just two aging guys reflecting on a lifetime of work.
Really well-made and oftentimes touching profile on the Kuchar twins, which also serves as a nice introduction to their intimidatingly large body of work. I wrote a lengthier review and it somehow got lost in this thing so fuck it
