BAD LUCKY GOAT
"An unexpected surprise, Bad Lucky Goat is lively and spry, funny and thoughtful. "
- Peter Martin, Screen Anarchy
"There?s a whiff of The Gods Must Be Crazy whimsy wafting through Bad Lucky Goat, an affably quirky debut feature by Bogota, Colombia-based Samir Oliveros."
- Michael Rechtshaffen, The Hollywood Reporter
"The playful narrative careens from a series of exotic locales, from rastafari drum makers to a climactic cock fight, with a blend of naturalistic dialogue and magic realism that?s both charming and unpredictable. The vivid backdrop creates an infectious atmosphere to this lighthearted romp, which stands toe-to-toe with Ozu in its depiction of angsty kids at odds with their surroundings. Yet Oliveros manages to use the rich environment to imbue the proceedings with an otherworldly quality that tips into fantasy and creates the sense that anything could happen. It?s a genuine crowdpleaser.... "
- Eric Kohn, Indiewire
