Entertainment (4/10)

I’m sorry to report, but the Neil Hamburger movie isn’t that good. It’s not a movie about the Neil Hamburger character but rather it’s about a comedian whose stage persona is Neil Hamburger and loneliness of his life on the road. Fine, that could work but there is never any payoff to any scene. Every potentially interesting interaction is resolved with Gregg Turkington not reacting and just looking awkward. The comedian is the exactly same character at the beginning of the movie as he is at the end. There is no growth or arc to speak of. The only thing (beside to two or three Hamburger jokes) that this movie has going for it is the artsy shot framing which will certainly appeal to people who follow that “One Perfect Shot” Twitter feed. Otherwise. I was very disappointed with this.
