HOLLYWOOD BUDDHA - PRESS

QUOTES

"'Hollywood Buddha' is the best movie about L.A. I've seen in a long time. It is beautifully directed with humour and compassion, and the performances are stunning, which is particularly impressive in that most of the cast weren't professional actors. Philippe Caland's own performance as the lead is not to be missed."
-Adrian Lyne, Director

"Philippe Caland's 'Hollywood Buddha' is captivating, droll, exasperating, sunny, and surprisingly soulful -- very much like the sprawling city it showcases and reveals.  It made me laugh and touched my heart -- an increasingly rare film-going twofer."
-Arianna Huffington, Syndicated Columnist and Author
"'Hollywood Buddha' is completely delightful, funny, smart, warm and wise. A real gift. And the acting and directing are spot on, just terrific."
