Below is a review from one of Cleveland International Film Festival’s screeners (those who watch the films and report to the Programmer). It’s pretty good… surprised we didn’t get in.
“What a beautiful, funny, and all around life affirming film. In so many ways this really is life, death and laughter in between. I loved the freshness of it. A lot of that is due to the editing – the film never drags. It is always moving forward and is always lively. Part of that is also due to the bravery of the guys (and women) being filmed. I don’t think that the shied away at all from being a tad vulnerable. I think that they were very honest and open, like most comics they weren’t afraid of making fools of themselves. While I think that their preparations before the show were way funnier than the show itself I couldn’t help but anticipate the show. And I wasn’t disappointed – again not because they were the funniest guys around but because you saw so much of who they were as people and because they just sort of put it out there. I think that the montages were brilliant and well placed. I loved the interviews with the comedians. I also loved the interviews with their family and friends and those moments when they were showing their real lives and not prepping. I wish there were more of those since they fell of some as the filming went on. Sometimes I think I wanted to see a little more of Mark since this really is his story and his journey but I think that it was smart that he opened it up a little more. All around I can’t imagine an audience not leaving this smiling (even if it is a little raunchy at times ;))”.

Delivery has had two screenings for test audiences (back in May), and despite the fact the film was a rough cut, with no graphics, no music, and running 10-15 minutes too long, we still received some great feedback on our comment cards.
- “Amazing. Touching. Funny and real.” (Jess H.)
- “Intelligent, thoughtful, silly, loud, quiet – all at the same time.” (Lindsay H.)
- “Great concept. I wish I thought of it.” (Andrew)
- “Laughed the whole time.” (Sherry)
- “Truly extraordinary and brave.” (Brett H.)
- “Love Bert! Perfect foursome.” (Cheryl Ann)
- “Candid. Funny! Creative.” (no name)
- “Inspires you to do something ‘new’.” (no name)
The film is now just an audio mix from being complete, and will be at film festivals in 2014. We hope that your experience of the documentary matches or exceeds the comments above.
