Critical praise for ‘THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT’:
“AN ABSOLUTE AMERICAN CLASSIC… with a mythic performance from Sam Elliott that should land him an Oscar… Everyone should watch it as soon as they’re humanly able—it’s a film that could make the world a better place.”
—Alan Simmons, Live for Films
“A wise, odd, and unforgettable ballad… A movie of an old soul, one that’s wise beyond its decades… EXQUISITE…”
—Nick Allen, RogerEbert.com
“THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT moulds the hellishly real with the whimsical to get us to question our place in the world. It is malevolent, hopeful, and incredibly moving.”
