Buzzard2014

  • 3.8
Marty is a caustic, small-time con artist drifting from one scam to the next. When his latest ruse goes awry, mounting paranoia forces him from his lousy small town temp job to the desolate streets of Detroit with nothing more than a pocket full of bogus checks, a dangerously altered Nintendo Power Glove, and a bad temper. Albert Camus meets Freddy Krueger in BUZZARD, a hellish and hilarious riff on the struggles of the American working class.

An excellent example of an indie film that turns its limitations into advantages, Buzzard is an outwardly simple story about someone we all know, or have been, or still are. On the surface, Buzzard is like Napoleon Dynamite's evil step brother, and every bit as entertaining as that pop-culture commodity. But beyond the comedy, the film is a calculated indictment of a society based on immediate consequences, where morality is not only irrelevant, but discouraged.

A gleefully awkward black comedy about a loser against the world. The long shots of weird interactions between ridiculous characters drives the film's descent from rebellion to murder. It is Kafka dark about the crushing powerlessness of bureaucratic life, and is a spiritual remake of Albert Camus' The Stranger.

Bailing out now...wooden, vacuous, creeping, nodding out. I'm going to go watch it snow.
