One of 2009’s Most Underrated Comedies
For some reason I managed to miss the reviews for Jared Hess’ “Gentlemen Broncos” when it first opened in limited release. I saw the trailer for it some time ago, and was excited for it; “Napoleon Dynamite” and even Hess’ follow-up “Nacho Libre” were two of the most off-kilter, refreshing comedies I’ve seen in the past decade. “Broncos” is absolutely no exception, expanding on and arguably perfecting the “geekverse” that Hess started with “Napoleon.” This third film in the “Crayola Trilogy” may be so well designed for sci-fi geeks and lovers of Hess’ first two movies, that it simply had no way to possibly survive in the mainstream market.
Me? I loved it. Not seeing any reviews beforehand, I was expecting a film that hit the same high notes of “Napoleon,” and for me, I got them. I am also a sci-fi nut, and I like my comedies full of bizarre and strangely real people- this, Hess excels in, as well. I went to bed last night rating it a “10” on IMDb; I was shocked to see the rating at a mere “5.5/ 10.” Flip over to Rotten Tomatoes; it’s a “Rotten” at 16%. I also find it worth noting that neither of Hess’ previous releases have been treated on IMDb much better— I seem to remember a time when “ND” was in the Top 250, or at the very least had a much higher rating than it does today (6.9). I recall “ND” being hailed as a cult classic, only to see its popularity seemingly cripple later opinions of the film (regardless of the fact it started very small).
Anyway. I’m just saying I think Jared Hess’ work has been roundly ignored for being truly great cinema. I can see why “Gentlemen Broncos” has not enjoyed the success of “ND”— it is a truly far-out film, that only “nuts” such as myself are likely to enjoy; I spent my youth much like the lead character writing short stories and dreaming up far-off worlds— for kids like that, and their adult counterparts, I can only say “See This Film.” You won’t regret it.
delightfully retarded comedy for all to enjoy
To potential viewers,
I don’t know how people may not see the beauty and wonder of “Gentlemen Broncos”. The way I see it: don’t think too much, sit back and relax in order to enjoy an eccentric journey of absurdity, wonderful humor, great music, fantastic acting and above all breath taking art direction. This film is so bad it’s beyond fantastic! One can tell that people who worked on it had a lot of good times with it.
Also, being a graphic designer I fully appreciated simple yet awesome film titles. Who was behind them?
