Critic Reviews for Applesauce

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

  • Multi-hyphenate Onur Tukel returns to the Tribeca fest with his seventh feature, a comedy so dark that only minimal humor alleviates the film's dour perspective.

  • Tukel invests most of his narrative making terrible people objects of ridicule, with a final punchline suggesting that, in the game of life, everyone's stuck on one side or the other of the same bad joke.

  • Applesauce, Onur Tukel's latest and most accomplished microbudget exercise in cynical absurdism, throws dismembered body parts into a couple of amicable marriages and charts the resultant explosions as paranoia runs rampant.

  • But I can't help but feel that his central message of the importance of empathy gets muddled by the slapdash storytelling.

  • Applesauce is an uncomfortable watch that is blisteringly funny.

  • Shifting from a vampires to yuppie revenge comedy Applesauce grew on me much like a fungus you learn to love.
