Editorial Reviews

Best known for their award-winning and hilariously deadpan Sundance shorts, acclaimed independent filmmakers the Zellner Brothers now deliver a new feature length comedy about a man who loses his wife, his job and his mind. But worst of all, he s also lost his beloved cat Goliath. What follows is a laugh-out-loud grim search for the sweetest, most wonderful cat in the whole world that straddles the line between humor and pathos like few other comedies you ve ever seen. Writer/director David Zellner, producer/editor Nathan Zellner, Wiley Wiggens (DAZED AND CONFUSED) and Andrew Bujalkski (FUNNY HA HA) star in this indie festival hit that Cinematical calls, a welcome funny and human reminder of the simple fact that the little things can mean a lot, both in life and in art.

Here at last is a film that doesn't show the constant strain of "keeping things moving." Its director and screenwriter (the Zellner Brothers) had the courage to let some scenes play out in real time. So we get a chance to live with the main character, to abide with him.

In one of the most exceptionally courageous scenes of all, we sit with the main character, played by David Zellner, as he and his estranged wife sign their final divorce papers, initialing sheet after sheet of documents. Far from this being boring though, the scene gives viewers a chance to really experience the couple's cold, white canceling of each other.

We get to participate in the little things that make up daily life and that, when highlighted on screen, can be seen as having a sort of comic disproportion all their own. For example, we see Zellner choosing a type font for the posters he's going to hang around the neighborhood, announcing a reward for the return of his lost cat, Goliath.

Oh, what we're all reduced to in the process of solving the many little problems that come our way - the little problems, that because they're ours, loom as big problems. We see Zellner walking down the shoulder of the expressway, operating an electric can opener off a generator he has strapped to his back. Every cat owner will be able to identify with that scene, because we all know that cats immediately learn the sound of whatever apparatus is used to open their cans of food. If a wandering cat is anywhere in the vicinity, it can be relied upon to come running to that sound.

This movie is not all comic chagrin though. It takes a dangerous, harrowing turn. Then we see how frustration can work itself out on a random target.

This is a quirky movie but a good one. It is not what you think its about but stay with it. It does take a certain kind of humor to understand it. I give it 5 stars, its unique, sad, funny and one of a kind.

Having followed the Zellner's career of shorts (my favorite was Aftermath on Meadowlark Lane) and even their earlier features (Plastic Utopia), I knew to expect a funny and wry movie, but Goliath exceeded my expectations, really moving me.

You don't have to be a cat lover to love this movie, but I'm sure it wouldn't hurt!
