    Amazing
    What an Amazing & Powerful movie. I couldn't tell you exactly why ,but when it was over I just sat there stunned & disoriented ,I had been so under it's spell for the entire length of the movie.

    For me it was a wonderful movie. For you ? I don't know - you'll just have to watch & see if it takes under it's spell.

    For the 1st half or so - it seems like it takes place in Ancient timeless times. But then ... of course ,they discover the road & you start to see it is our time. SO Sad.

    Good or bad - these film makers have created something quite original & very powerful. For me it was a magical & mesmerizing experience. Can't believe it sucked me in, but it surely did !

    Tony's Mix 2
    The film follows the life of a family of 4 Sasquatches. We watch them struggle through four seasons. They do all the disgusting things that humans do but typically do not appear in films such as nose picking and booger eating. The production felt the need to show us fake genitalia and oversexed males. They communicate between clans by banging sticks or trees. The humor was not funny and mostly badly done slapstick. The first sign of humans was a large tree with a painted red "X" located outside of Willow Tree, California.

    There is supposed to be some meaningful message in the film. The only one I saw was careers reaching their bottom. Far from "epic, hilarious, and ultimately poignant."

    Guide: No language. Sex and fake Sasquatch nudity.

    Odd but relatively well made 'almost' mockumentary
    Almost uniquely odd, "Sasquatch Sunset" won't appeal to all. Jesse Eisenberg, Riley Keough, Christophe Zajac-Denek & Nathan Zellner (unrecognisable all under heavy & impressive prosthetics) are a family of sasquatch (aka bigfoot and/or yeti) seen roaming the Californian jungles over a year in the '80s. The screenplay (from David Zellner - who co-directed with brother Nathan) is divided into the four seasons, thru which the four forage, fish, re-produce, and curiously react to their surroundings. Having no narration it's not a mockumentary, but also with no dialogue (except grunts etc) it won't easily engage everyone, despite being interesting & relatively well made.
