Movie Info

Filled with a cast of eccentric characters, each pursuing dreams and missions of their own making, Lord Byron paints a kaleidoscopic portrait of the strange and lonely world of its title character, a middle-aged, late-20th century romantic who's confused and torn about his own ambitions and desires. --(c) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Lord Byron

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Against all reason, Byron's televangelist-led quest for clarity compels us to follow, the film's melting, naturalistic images softening the occasional scream of dialogue repeated beyond all necessity.

New York Times
Top Critic

Vacillating between free-associative shtick and complete inertia, Lord Byron is lost in thought and allergic to reason.

Village Voice
Top Critic

This microbudgeted character study of a good-natured, religiously curious and plus-sized South Louisiana gentleman with 'a thing for women' is one of the more distinctive features to emerge from the so-called 'mumblecore' movement.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

There is something interesting about the tension between fact and fiction, but there's also something frustrating too.

Lord Byron manages to turn nonsensical gibberish into a captivating soundtrack for the equally fragmented stories of the strangers living in the same home.

Slant Magazine

Lord Byron is best seen as an experiment in telling the simplest of stories with the simplest of means.
