Marty is a caustic, small-time con artist drifting from one scam to the next. When his latest ruse goes awry, mounting paranoia forces him from his lousy small town temp job to the desolate streets of Detroit with nothing more than a pocket full of bogus checks, a dangerously altered Nintendo® Power Glove, and a bad temper. Albert Camus meets Freddy Krueger in BUZZARD, a hellish and hilarious riff on the struggles of the American working class. Director / Producer / Writer and Derek, Joel Potrykus stops by to talk about the benefits of casting musicians and comedians in key roles, the creativity of low budget projects, Marty and the “party zone.”

Office Space on crack.” – Indiewire

“You kind of want him to succeed in his petty rebellion against boredom, conformity and corporate blandness, and you kind of want him to be punched in the face.” – A.O. Scott, New York Times

“A 21st century version of Travis Bickle.” – Kurt Brokaw, Independent Magazine

“The incredible Joshua Burge is a Buster Keaton for the 99%” – Nicholas Elliott, BOMB Magazine

“Like all great things, Joel Potrykus’ latest feature Buzzard only gets better with time. With the ability to seamlessly blend Mauvais Sang and Mountain Dew, the more I ruminate on the film’s nuances and unique brand of humor and passion, the more I love it.” – Hillary Weston, Blackbook Magazine
