Burt’s Buzz Trailer Review on /Film

/Film’s weekly column “This Week In Trailers” profiled our trailer for the FilmBuff documentary Burt’s Buzz and had some nice things to say about that familiar face and beard.  Read Christopher Stipp’s write up below:

I just felt calm watching this.

Director Jody Shapiro looks to have made a documentary that seems completely fascinating and utterly infused with a sense of good vibes. There is a sense of melancholy about Burt, a sadness almost, but the trailer feels like an old school, peppy VW bug that is being passed by far more modern pieces of automotive machinery. And they could care less. This guy Burt seems just tickled with where he is in life, even though he seems to display only one emotion, and the kind of fawning people make over his presence makes him the epitome of an unlikely celebrity. I’ve never used any of his products but I absolutely know that face and that beard. Why this looks like one of the most interesting documentaries I’ve seen this month baffles me but I do that this trailer is so evenly paced, scored and edited there isn’t any other answer to its request for your time other than to say yes, yes indeed.

Burt’s Buzz is available on in Theaters, on Demand and on iTunes.
