” ‘Buzzard‘…trumps all generic blockbusters in that it very much is a roller coaster ride, one that thrills, upsets and makes one queasy, all in surprising ways,” we wrote in our review out of the New Directors/New Films fest last spring. If you’re tired of the tentpole formula and are looking for a film with an original voice and a twisted sense of humor, then this is one you’ll probably want to see. You can give “Buzzard” a test run with the first trailer arriving today.
Written, directed and starring Joel Potrykus along with Joshua Burge, Teri Ann Nelson, Alan Longstreet, Rico Bruce Wade, and Katie Call, the film follows Marty, a small-time scam artist who goes on the run following his latest scheme. And while comedy is at the fore in the beginning of the picture, the tone soon turns a bit darker, as Marty tries to figure a way out from a situation that’s closing in on him.
Picking up an award at the Locarno International Film Festival last year, “Buzzard” arrives in cinemas in 2015 via Oscilloscope Laboratories. Watch below.
