Rating: B -- An enjoyable lighthearted watch about someone you want to root for to succeed. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Rating: 3.5/5.0 -- 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. Full Review
[A] compelling, sweet, funny valentine to a comic's comic and a true American original.
Rating: B+ -- 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 succeeds in reflecting the weird sweetness in Pepitone.
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.
Los Angeles Times
Rating: 3/5 -- The film's unvarying lack of drama or direction can be wearing, but the schlubby originality of its subject fully repays the longueurs.
New York Times
Filmmaker Steven Feinartz presents this portrait of alternative comic Eddie Pepitone, who didn't find fame until middle-age, and whose personal struggles with addiction, insecurity, and family dysfunction made achieving his showbusiness goals an especially arduous prospect.
