Audience Reviews for Penn & Teller Get Killed

  • May 14, 2011
    Unusual satirical dark humor movie, tense and comic. A rare Arthur Penn's jewel that is little know and misunderstood until these days.

    Totally random and all over the place. I'm not going to say I didn't laugh, but I think saying the film is uneven would be an understatement. Worth it just to see Teller talk and for the Downfall-ish ending
