    • A VERY funny documentary

      Unless you're really into today's alternative comedy scene, you probably aren't aware of Eddie Pepitone - and if you are, you've already been sold on the DVD. For those of you not in the know, Eddie is one of the freshest voices in contemporary standup - and he's in his mid-fifties. The Bitter Buddha introduces us to Eddie as a man enjoying an unexpected surge in popularity in the midst of middle age. All the typical plot points for biographical documentaries are touched upon: past failures (Eddie's career struggles, issues with his father and his sobriety), the secret to his newfound success, and interviews with the people who know him best. Structurally the film is nothing new, although it does include a few clever animated versions of Eddie's standup bits. What makes or breaks a documentary like this is its subject, and Eddie certainly does not disappoint. Eddie's sense of humor, on stage and off, is bitter, caustic, introspective, and often absurdist, and it's Eddie's personality that makes this film such a memorable experience. So many more qualified people have already testified to Eddie's comedic genius; in this movie alone, Patton Oswalt, Sarah Silverman, Zach Galifianiakis, and Marc Maron. Even so, allow me to add myself to the list of acolytes to the Bitter Buddha.
