    Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot First Reactions

    Alison Willmore: DON’T WORRY, HE WON’T GET FAR ON FOOT: Gus Van Sant’s John Callahan biopic is well intentioned, interminable, and, once you sort out the chopped up chronology, disappointingly staid

    Tomris Laffly: Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot is…OK. Solid performances from Jonah Hill & Joaquin Phoenix, though nothing extraordinary. Unfolds in disjointed fragments, which works only to a degree. Worth seeing, but not my favorite Gus Van Sant. Also, casting Rooney Mara & then wasting her is not cool. :/

    Alex Billington: Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot – Solid film about challenges of giving up alcohol. Basically AA: The Movie. Disjointed editing is a bit wonky but it works well overall. Jonah Hill at his most chill. Joaquin Phoenix is exceptional as always.

    Steven Zeitchik: Gus Van Sant’s Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot is the love child of The Diving Bell and The Butterfly and American Splendor, in the best way

    Matt Neglia: Gus Van Sant is back w/ DON’T WORRY HE WON’T GET FAR ON FOOT which looses its footing here & there on occasion but is always elevated by the emotional rollercoaster of a performance from Joaquin Phoenix. A definite crowd pleaser w/ laughs, heartbreak & hope

    Between this and “Lion” I hope it won’t be a new trend.

    So did anything relevant happen? I’m not reading anything anywhere about the films they showed. No Call Me By Your Name, Get Out, Mudbound, or a Precious, Manchester, Birth of a Nation, not even a Patti Cakes even if that one flopped. Nothing.

    How long has it been since a Sundance film failed to show up at the Oscars? Because it certainly looks like nothing will hold on until 2019.

    I think something will show up somewhere like Best Actress or such, but there probably aren’t any BP nominees in the lineup.

    Everything sounded really interesting. I’d like to be there.

    There is a Get Out this year. It’s called Hereditary.
