Saint Misbehavin': The Wavy Gravy Movie Reviews

Gary Goldstein

Esrick has crafted an affectionate portrait of a man whose eclectic, ebullient life has been devoted to peace, love and understanding - an eternal hippie who has "walked the walk" since he burst onto the Greenwich Village "Beat" scene in the late 1950s.

As freewheeling and irreverent as the man himself, Saint Misbehavin' is that rare documentary whose flaws seem appropriate for its subject matter.

Like its subject, Saint Misbehavin' is an unabashed love letter to the world that defies the cynicism of our age.

Saint Misbehavin': The Wavy Gravy Movie is a celebration and something of a scrapbook too, a collection of memories without much in the way of questions.

Its subject is so personable, with both an infectious personality and a razor-sharp mind, that it's hard not to get caught up in his story.

Nora Lee Mandel

[M]ore than a footnote to the 1960's counterculture, he's serious fun in this [genial] bio-documentary on the role of the clown/fool in society.

Brian Orndorf

Doesn't probe too deeply into the man, but the message of altruism is loud and clear, befitting a rascal who's spent his colorful days trying to make the world a better place.

Film Journal International

A much better movie than its off-putting title would suggest, Saint Misbehavin': The Wavy Gravy Movie will introduce many to a singularly altruistic individual.

A remarkable and rowdy documentary about a contemporary holy fool and saint who walks his talk about love, compassion, peace, and transformation.

It's impossible to watch this movie without feeling that you're in the presence of a good and decent man.

Esrick spent 10 years on the film, and the result is a comprehensive portrait.

Slant Magazine

Perfunctory, bowdlerized, and intermittently condescending, Saint Misbehavin' has all the biographical trenchancy of a fundraiser infomercial.

Are we to believe that this wild-haired, in-your-face LSD disciple is Mr. Perfect? I doubt it.

Despite the claim that Wavy Gravy is some kind of holy clown, he said nothing or did nothing in this movie that is funny at all. An acquired taste, I suppose.

Perhaps the fly-on-the-wall approach of Esrick's mentor (and this film's executive producer) D.A. Pennebaker would have been more revealing. Instead, we get just a mystery man in white.
