Watch: Gregg Turkington Tours the Desert In ‘Entertainment’ Clip and Full Soundtrack Details

Written by on October 23, 2015 


Like his latest feature, The Comedy, there will be no film like Rick Alverson‘s Entertainment this year. With Gregg Turkington‘s portraying his alter ego Neil Hamburger, it’s an uncomfortable, often hilarious character study, and today brings another look. Along with an extensive clip, it’s been revealed the soundtrack — which will get 1,000 vinyl pressings — will not only feature music, but comedy segments as well.

We said in our review, “Every second of the 102-minute running time is felt. We’re trapped with this character on his never-ending journey, one that makes for an unpleasant watch. Yet the pace, imagery, and Turkington’s compelling performance add up to an unnerving comedy. Entertainment is the kind of film one never has to see again, but will be better off for having seen it.”

Check out the clip and soundtrack details below along with a conversation between Alverson and Stinking Heaven director Nathan Silver. If one missed the trailer, they can check it out here for the film also starring John C. Reilly, Tye Sheridan, Amy Seimetz, and Michael Cera.

A broken, aging comedian tours the California desert, lost in a cycle of third-rate venues, novelty tourist attractions, and vain attempts to reach his estranged daughter. By day, he slogs through the barren landscape, inadvertently alienating every acquaintance. At night, he seeks solace in the animation of his onstage persona. Fueled by the promise of a lucrative Hollywood engagement, he trudges through a series of increasingly surreal and volatile encounters. In Alverson’s hallucinatory fugue, Gregg Turkington stars as The Comedian, caught in a struggle between being the center of attention and the object of alienation, occasionally challenged by an unexpected cast of characters played by Tye Sheridan, John C. Reilly, Michael Cera, and Amy Seimetz.


Entertainment hits theaters and VOD on November 13th.
