The film succeeds in reflecting the weird sweetness in Pepitone.
This loving portrait of the angst-ridden comedian should well lift his profile.
This is a portrait of an interesting and endearing misanthrope, but someone who we all know lives inside of us. Eddie's just more willing to put it all out there, to express that existential angst most modern people experience.
The film's unvarying lack of drama or direction can be wearing, but the schlubby originality of its subject fully repays the longueurs.
By turns robustly amusing and wistfully melancholy.
Eddie Pepitone, perhaps the funniest stand-up comedian you've never heard of, gets a deserving close-up in the amusing, freewheeling documentary "The Bitter Buddha."
Half successful standup comic Eddie Pepitone expands the screen from stage to life as he lives his part 24 hours a day.
An enjoyable lighthearted watch about someone you want to root for to succeed.
Forget the tears of a clown as it pertains to inner psychology of a comedian -- what about the rage of a clown? That's the principal focus of The Bitter Buddha, a doc that's too polite and removed.
It's a solid doc.
Few comics with this degree of rage have been this self-aware and comical about it. He's a fascinating blend of NYC anger and L.A. trends. He's a wannabe vegan with road rage. 'Nuff said.
Engaging, revealing and even a bit moving.
