Movie Info

The Documentary takes an unconventional journey with a true "comic's comic". For a few decades, Eddie Pepitone has proven to be a startling force in the alt-comedy scene. Within "The Bitter Buddha" we follow Eddie as he deals with a middle-age career surge, while struggling with self-doubt, sobriety, and a challenging family history. (c) Official Sitemore

The film's unvarying lack of drama or direction can be wearing, but the schlubby originality of its subject fully repays the longueurs.

By turns robustly amusing and wistfully melancholy.

Eddie Pepitone, perhaps the funniest stand-up comedian you've never heard of, gets a deserving close-up in the amusing, freewheeling documentary "The Bitter Buddha."

Top Critic

The Bitter Buddha strains a little too hard for dramatic heft, but it's nevertheless a compelling, sweet, funny valentine to a comic's comic and a true American original.
