Lacking work in his home town of Denver, computer repairman and aspiring actor Arthur Martinez decides to hire indie directors Mike Ott and Nathan Silver to document his life, and consequently become the star of a feature film. However, as the project evolves, the directors' and Arthur's vision increasingly differ. It becomes clear that watching Arthur perform tai chi, mingle with the local Denver theater community, and drive around town, will not provide enough drama to carry a film. Read More Read Less

Marjorie Baumgarten Austin Chronicle Everyone involved in Actor Martinez deserves kudos for the effort, but the unengaging result would be better chalked up to a failed experiment rather than shared with others in theatrical settings. Rated: 2/5 Mar 23, 2017 Full Review Andy Webster New York Times The self-references here, while intriguing, approach a comic navel-gaze. "Actor Martinez" has a saving grace, however: Ms. Burdge, radiating her customary charisma. Mar 16, 2017 Full Review Sam Weisberg Village Voice Whether the real-life Martinez is this hotheaded and quick-tempered is left a mystery, but it matters not a whit, because even five minutes in the company of this Martinez is excruciating. Mar 15, 2017 Full Review Michael J. Casey Michael J. Cinema Lean, potent, and downright entrancing. Rated: 4.5/5 Jun 14, 2021 Full Review Kam Williams Baret News A headscratcher apt to keep you guessing whether what you're watching is real or simply staged... Overall, mildly amusing, but nothing to write home about. Rated: 2/4 Mar 10, 2017 Full Review John Fink The Film Stage A comedy that plays like a cross between Henry Jaglom, Kevin Smith and the Duplass brothers with droll rambling humor and emotional honesty. Rated: B- May 4, 2016 Full Review Read all reviews
