    At its best, this descent into madness plays out like a millennial stoner's take on Jacob's Ladder. More often, it recalls a sobering truth: Nobody likes listening to someone ramble while high.

    A bit too true to a frugal indie philosophy, where winging it beats reshooting, the film gets more woolly and unfocused; many scenes feel improvised and only occasionally hit their marks.

    To call Don Peyote a mess would be putting too fine a point on it.

    Taking on such a wacky project for his directorial debut shows evidence of real ambition, yet Don Peyote must be considered a complete miss. Still, Fogler is certainly not without charm and comedic ability.

    The worst American film I've seen this year.

    There’s no rhythm or rules, and the beyond-indifferent camerawork and community-access-TV-grade effects help nothing.

    All the controlled substances in the world couldn't improve a viewing of the execrable Don Peyote, a tedious, incoherent look at a paranoid stoner's emotional and spiritual unraveling.

    Very amateur and puts shame to the potentially fantastic ideas behind the film.
    Freeman fly is a great guy. Too bad this film doesn't do him
    or his work justice. Expand
