Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Byron has always been a lover of women. He s a romantic, and he loves all of his girlfriends the same way totally and completely. But he s grown restless in his middle age, and recently he has found himself lost in some heavy things about big things like God, and love, and time. So when a demon-obsessed televangelist suggests that he retreat from the chaos of the world, Byron escapes his town and embarks on a spiritual journey of the fantastic kind. In Lord Byron, a deadpan Greek tragedy set in South Louisiana, a cast of bizarre, comedic characters, led by newcomer Paul Batiste, pursue uncommon dreams and missions of their own making.

Review

A provocative collage! Shows a deep intelligence. --John Anderson, Variety

A spicy Jambalaya mix of odd sorts! --Duane Byrge, The Hollywood Reporter

A wonderfully alive, character-rich ode to living in the moment. --Jennifer Prediger, Grist

John Kennedy Toole's A Confederacy of Dunces meets British poet Lord Byron's Don Juan, Childe Harold's Pilgrimage and shadows based on a true story all rolled into one. Bravo.

Take romance and sex, weed smoking, drinking, poverty, religion, a little violence, lack of medical care, crisply ironed clothing, and dismal fate topped with a lottery win; put in a stew of various mental acuities, symptoms of autism, brain injury, and partial seizures; blend meandering and wanderings in search of the meaning of life, and you've got this modern Lord Byron of the Lower Income Louisana Suburbia. The only thing missing from this work are the stereo-typical accents making this film's dialogue authentic and accessible.

Incredibly the shooting budget was less than $1,000. The camera work and editing on this were superb. 10 STAR work from award winning Indie filmmakers.

I watched the documentary to the end but would not watch it a second time. To my knowledge I have never met a person such as Lord Byron. His way of being was new to me - articulate loafer exploring his new interest in religion as he interprets it while cavorting with other's money and property as well as affections. The subject did not engage me, but if a first film, good enough production.

I don't often review films, but I was lucky enough to see this movie at a local film festival, and it is hands down one of the best independent films that I have ever seen. Zack Godshall is a Louisiana native, and his honesty and sense of humor about his home state lend this film an incredible sense of place and of regional identity. The movie makes a powerful statement about the loneliness of human existence, without being hopeless or overtly existential - it is simply raw, honest, and thoughtful. It astounds me that this film was made for under $1000. It is truly a testament to Godshall's talent as a storyteller that he was able to produce this beautiful, powerful film.
