The Bitter Buddha Reviews

March 19, 2013
The film succeeds in reflecting the weird sweetness in Pepitone.
March 13, 2013
This loving portrait of the angst-ridden comedian should well lift his profile.
March 9, 2013
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."

February 14, 2013
The Bitter Buddha strains a little too hard for dramatic heft, but it's nevertheless a compelling, sweet, funny valentine to a comic's comic and a true American original.

The Bitter Buddha is very funny, and for all its bitterness, Eddie Pepitone's comedy is a taste that's easy to acquire.
