Bitter Art is an award winning Australian comedy. Set in the small town of Pemberton we find Tyson at a crossroads. His life is not where he wants it to be. He should be in Hollywood. Instead he's in the middle of small town Australia, one step away from having to give up the dream, move back in with his parents and find a job stacking shelves at the supermarket. But he has one last chance, The Tall Tales Film Festival, if and only if he can stop himself from being himself - an angry, cynical Bitter Artist. Written by Michael Hatch

new talent
14 August 2010 | by terryotoole23See all my reviews

saw bitter art at the oz film festival in Sydney this year, because of so many films i try and whittle it down to 3, was glad i picked this one. Personally i think oz films are lacking in character/script depth as shown in most recent(this year) oz dramas,comedies etc same old actors/actresses rehashed in new roles but not surprisingly different from their old ones(no names mentioned but not hard to work out) Bitter Art is definitely a breath of fresh air. Developed characters, great Aussie dialog, set in beautiful rural w.a. and most importantly an awesome oz soundtrack which sets up a interesting opening scene with plenty of hilarious incidents through out the movie-the dude in the chicken suit popping up at the most odd times, you could make a spin off alone on that Apart from me laughing regularly i found that Bitter Art dealt with one of the toughest personal issues of envy and one man's quest to put it aside and learn to trust his own talent even though it takes him awhile to find it. Anyways since that film i have checked out and put the asap films website on favorites and have liked what i've seen so far, i look forward to future projects from asap as the Australian Film Industry really needs a kick in the bum and Bitter Art is a start. Cheers
