We cannot (and will not) contain our excitement. Director Rick Alverson’s critically acclaimed film, The Comedy, is now out on DVD! You can purchase a physical copy on Amazon or from other in-store retailers. Included on the DVD are special deleted scenes and audio commentary with Tim Heidecker and Rick Alverson. If streaming or downloading is more your style, watch it easily on Netflix, iTunes, or Amazon Instant Video.
Tuesday, the A.V. Club made The Comedy its new to DVD movie “Pick Of The Week,” calling the film “a spiritual successor to Mike Nichols’ The Graduate and Carnal Knowledge.” New Video also featured the film’s release, claiming that Rick Alverson’s “powerful and provocative character study touches a darkness behind the humor that resonates with viewers long after the story ends.”
