The day-to-day grind of office life is something most of us tolerate to make a living, but for Marty in Joel Potrykus‘ “Buzzard,” it’s an indignity that’s beneath him. He’s always got some kind of con going on, but his latest scheme is one that will find him in over his head. And today, we have an exclusive clip from the edgy film that won a Special Mention Award from the Junior Jury at the Locarno International Film Festival.
Written, directed and starring Joel Potrykus along with Joshua Burge, Teri Ann Nelson, Alan Longstreet, Rico Bruce Wade and Katie Call, the story zeroes in on Marty who seizes an opportunity when it lands right in his lap. Entrusted with some undelivered checks, the young man soon sees the possibility to make some cash, and as you’ll see in the sequence below, he’s figured out a way to forge the required signatures. But consequences will soon follow.
“Buzzard” is now playing in New York City and expands this weekend around the country. Watch below and read our review.
