Ape 2012
Description: Trevor Newandyke is a struggling comedian. Not only does he bomb on stage, but he bombs in daily life. He’s fed up with all the jerks who push him around. All he wants is a break, and for someone to receive him. Instead of taking a breath and getting himself together or taking his anger to the stage, he turns to the loud din of his headphones and the crackling glow of fire to ease his mind. He’s not only a lousy comic, but a pyromaniac, as well.
Released: 25 Feb 2014 Director: Joel Potrykus Writers: Joel Potrykus Actors: Joshua Burge, Gary Bosek, Daniel Falicki, Jason Roth Genres: Comedy, Drama, Fantasy

Ape Reviews:

lucky enough to catch this weird tiny gem at VIFF (vancouver fest). weak budget and surreal, with humor that you'll either get, or won't. Nothing here is too obvious or direct. I now thought a lot of the jokes the main hero says are cute damn funny. The lead hero Trevor is a lot like Travis Bickle from Taxi Driver, too. Nice performance.The director obviously doesn't like the "mtv" style of editing or using flashy camera tricks. Its all very "real" feeling and mundane. There's no romance of large sad or dramatic moments. I don't even remember hearing a traditional score. Just some really cool punk, metal, and hip hop songs that the lead hero hears. It's like we're directly inside his head. Very cool choice and something I don't remember seeing before.Hopefully it will come out in the US soon, or at least back to Canada!


Plot: Life is tough for the struggling stand-up comedian Trevor. He can't seem to muster up a single laugh in the audience, and off the scene he's just an awkward, lonely and extremely terrible pyromaniac. His days are spent drinking slushies, lighting random things on fire and practicing jokes in front of the mirror. He is beginning to lose grip of his own mind.Our thoughts: When I saw the trailer for "Ape" I wasn't sure if I would like it, but there was something that seemed a bit off, a bit different, that made me interested. As far as I knew, it could've been a pseudo-documentary as much as an art-house/indie comedy - but when I heard the lead in the trailer, while on stage, telling he'd hit the next heckler in the audience, I knew I wanted to give it a shot. I hate hecklers, and I love "Falling Down"... Nice enough of a reason, right?"Ape" says the storyline of Trevor, a young, skinny, terrible and lonely stand- up comic. His life is really just going in circles around his broken dreams - he knows he's not gonna succeed as a comic, but it's all he has. When he's not failing on stage, he's failing at another things. The only thing that really gets him excited is setting things on fire. Not houses or anything, but smaller and innocent things: such as using spray cans as flamethrowers. I think we can all relate to that. Things are difficult for Trevor, there is no doubt about it, and his mind is starting to go a tiny awry as he one day sells an old joke to the Devil, and in return he gets an apple. Trevor has a joke on scene that is based on Adam, Eve, the snake and the apple that ends with him telling he would never create a deal with the Devil. Not a successful joke, of course, but one that will come to be very necessary in his life. Actually that he has the apple, he has to decide whether or not to eat it - clearly it's a magical apple.Perhaps this sound extremely ridiculous. And maybe it is a bit silly. But "Ape" works because it plays it so casually, and it never makes large turns. He doesn't meet the Devil in a vision or in hell, but the Devil is a guy dressed in a costume and he is standing by a fruit stand selling salad (don't ask). So even here, and in upcoming turns that are quite odd, it still remains cute damn realistic. It's obvious that Joel Potrykus has been attentive with his script, and he is just as attentive with his directing. This is a slow film that doesn't do much, but instead it portrays such a nice picture of the life of a struggling comedian. It has all the awkwardness of a failed joke, it has the repetition of trying to better the jokes, and it has the loser who tries and tries and tires. It also has the competition, other loser - but one who doesn't realize he sucks.I think what Joel Potrykus has done here is excellent. From the really bleak drama and stale comedy, to the subtle approach to the surreal topics that slowly grows within the movie, it's just spot-on and never misses a chord of emotion. But nothing would have worked without Joshua Burge in the lead. He's the excellent personality for this role. One look at him and you "get" the character. You're ready to walk through all of this hell with him.I really loved "Ape". It's straight up my alley, working with comedy through drama, and adding some mind bending concepts towards the end. It's everytime a film about our hero and never about aesthetics or getting laughs, and I think that's great. There are no large slapping-the-knee laughs, but the whole film is just so much fun in all its sadness. I know it's early still, as I am writing this in late February, but so far this is the only film I have watched so far that I consider for my 2013 list. Time will say how that turns out, but this is a nice tiny film that I can't wait to own. "Ape" is quirky, weird, sad, funny, intense, charming and then some!More reviews at FilmBizarro.com


Ape proves that cinema can capture the audience without unnecessary and distracting cuts, crane shots, or love interests. Burge's performance along with Potrykus' direction allows the audience to take in Trevor Newandyke with slight frustration, but still remain attached with a certain amount of likability to the character. Trevor, who seems to be full of frustration, just the same, seems to listen to melody consistently reinforcing the frustration. Potrykus gives breaks of this anger with bits of comedy and fire. Ape has many twists and turns, and pushes the boundaries of its viewers with long shots and awkward scenes. Nonetheless, it seems to keep my attention throughout and leaves me wanting more for from this unbelievable duo. Please note, the movie may not be for you if you think nice cinema equals ridiculous cuts, million dollar budgets, or plots that don't create you test your brain. Ape seems to have multiple lvls and perhaps meanings that many may miss if not willing to allow go of modern-day blockbuster expectations.
