The Documentary takes an unconventional journey with a true “comic’s comic”. For a few decades, Eddie Pepitone has proven to be a startling force in the alt-comedy scene. Within “The Bitter Buddha” we follow Eddie as he deals with a middle-age career surge, while struggling with self-doubt, sobriety, and a challenging family history.

July 23rd, 2013

This week's new releases are so bad that I'm tempted to hold on to this story till I finish the review for Star Trek: The Next Generation: Season Four on Blu-ray, just so I would have a real contender for Pick of the Week.
