Movie Info

"It Came From Kuchar" is a film about the legendary, underground filmmaking twins, George and Mike Kuchar. As kids in the 1950s, George and Mike began making no-budget 8mm epics in their Bronx neighborhood, starring friends and family. In the 1960s the Kuchars became part of Warhol's New York, underground film scene. The Kuchar brother's films have inspired many prominent filmmakers, including John Waters, Buck Henry, Atom Egoyan, Guy Maddin and Wayne Wang.

  • 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.

    June 4, 2010 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    April 15, 2010 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The portrait that emerges is affectionate and fascinating. The brothers themselves are un-self-consciously talkative, unassumingly odd and frequently very funny.

    April 9, 2010 | Rating: 4/5
  • You don't have to have ever seen any of their movies to enjoy It Came From Kuchar, directed by one of George's former students, Jennifer M. Kroot. But you'll probably want to catch up with their work afterward.
