Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot

August Keller


An acting clinic on screen, Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot is undoubtedly commendable yet undeniably plain. Praise will be focused on the cast, who carry the film in every way possible; from a medley of emotions to seamless connections, the acting in Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot is truly powerful. The critiques, however, will point towards the muted and monotonous nature of the movie, which only highlights the occasionally verbose tendencies of the script. The technical aspects of this biopic are handled well but because Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot relies so heavily on the performances of its writing, the flaws there are magnified.

The complex editing between timelines, weaknesses in the plot or direct photography of this movie may catch heat from viewers; however, those all seem to serve the greater goal of delivering an intentionally constrained narrative. Because Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot is hyper-focused on its thematic character arc, some audiences may find it slightly lacking in other departments. Still, the quality of this film is anchored by its actors who bring many quiet moments to life. In the end, Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot is a limited yet striking movie that should leave most audiences feeling obliged.
