Numbered VHS LIMITED EDITION of 100 with digital code to watch film: 


Marty Jackitansky, a bored temp at a mortgage office, is out to get what he feels he deserves. He’ll swindle and scam corporations out of ten dollars just for the thrill. Soon Marty hatches a scheme to steal petty refund checks from his mortgage company, thinking he’ll somehow fool banks into cashing them. He reveals his plan to his only work friend, Derek, who’s seen Marty fail in the past. Marty’s growing suspicions forces him to hide out in Derek’s basement for a week, terrified of the outside world. His anxiety temporarily subsides with absurd basement party games, but eventually festers into a dangerous state of aggression. After lashing out against Derek, Marty hops a bus to Detroit, a city victim to the same type of corporate oppression that Marty fears. His nights are spent at either derelict motels or a luxurious high rise, depending on how much is in his pocket at the time. As soon as he comes into money, he spends it. Marty’s misdirected paranoia reaches a psychotic state, as he mutates into a man willing to draw blood from those he sees as bloodsuckers.

"Offers a cinematic high" -Richard Brody, The New Yorker

"'Buzzard' is among the first great American satires of the 21st century"- Eric Kohn, Indiewire

"A slamming indictment of ding-a-ling millennials, an Office Space–like screed against corporate monotony, a riotous inertia comedy" -Joshua Rothkopf, TIME OUT NEW YORK

"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, The 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

"Potrykus has fashioned a vigorous and strangely compelling character study, a sustained burst of punk-rock ferocity, and one of the most original American films to emerge in some time."- Calum Marsh, The Village Voice

"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
