FILM GUIDE ARCHIVE FEATURE DOCUMENTARY

DESPICABLE DICK AND RIGHTEOUS RICHARD

TFF 2011 Directed by Joshua Neale
FILM GUIDE ARCHIVE DESPICABLE DICK AND RIGHTEOUS RICHARD [TFF 2011]

Dick Kuchera has been pissing people off for 50 years. Leaving a bride at the altar, fooling around with his brother-in-law's fiancee, and spouting foul-mouthed arrogance while buck naked—none of this has helped. Dick now faces the biggest hurdle in his 20-year path to recovery: steps eight and nine of a 12-step program. Packed with a cheeky wit and a list of everyone he's wronged—from ex-wives to ex-mistresses, abandoned kids to slighted pals—Richard (as he now prefers to be called) sets out on a road trip through America's Great Plains with grand hopes of making overdue amends and clearing his conscience. Silver-tongued Richard manages to charm his way back into the lives of his loved ones, delivering just the right amount of heartfelt apology needed to elicit sympathy for himself as a flawed, but well intentioned, guy. But when Richard's self-centered behavior resurfaces, so does the question of whether Dick will ever really change.

Soulful folk music and off-color characters buoy an emotional story of redemption with surprising levity and deadpan humor. Joshua Neale's sharply observed directorial debut offers a startlingly resonant tragicomedy about recovery, forgiveness, and change.
