critics consensus

Unsettling and bracingly original, Buzzard is a fascinating -- and often very funny -- plunge into lo-fi cinematic psychosis. Read critic reviews

Audience Reviews for Buzzard

  • Nov 21, 2015
    Yes, it's one of many modern films focusing on angry and aimless white males, but "Buzzard" distinguishes itself by focusing on a uniquely troubled character. More delusional than psychotic and less clever than scrappy, Marty proves to be one of the "great" losers to grace the screen in the past few years.

    Joel Potrykus' deliriously idiosyncratic Buzzard tells the story of Marty, a similarly idiosyncratic small-time scam artist whose life slowly starts to unravel, throwing his sanity into crisis along with it. This deliriously daring, genre-bending thrill ride easily transcends its decidedly low-fi production values. This is thanks in large part to Potrykus' script, which -- again like its main character - is hilariously snarky and oddly charming, while consistent in conveying a strong undercurrent of frustration and dread. A large chunk of credit must also go to lead actor Joshua Burge. With his distinctive look and considerable acting prowess, Burge brings the unhinged Marty to vivid life. He assures that all eyes will be glued to him at all times, even when Potrykus dares the audience to look away. With a one-of-a-kind style and several memorable scenes, Buzzard already feels like a surefire cult favorite.
