Amazing journey from Brooklyn to who knows to where. Riveting. Hope it gets a wider distribution.

Village Voice
The Bitter Buddha is very funny, and for all its bitterness, Eddie Pepitone's comedy is a taste that's easy to acquire. Full Review
Gary Goldstein
Los Angeles Times
[An] amusing, freewheeling documentary. Full Review
Jeannette Catsoulis
The New York Times
The film’s unvarying lack of drama or direction can be wearing, but the schlubby originality of its subject fully repays the longueurs. Full Review
Nathan Rabin
The A.V. Club
The Bitter Buddha closes with Pepitone pondering whether he’s wasted his life by focusing on comedy rather than family, but everything that’s come before suggests that decision has led to a life that’s a triumph rather than a tragedy. Full Review
