DVD Review: Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot

November 6, 2018

By John Corrado

A biopic of controversial, alcoholic cartoonist John Callahan (Joaquin Phoenix), who became a quadriplegic after surviving a drunk driving accident, Gus Van Sant’s Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot is a powerful film about overcoming adversity that has stuck with me since I watched it over the summer.

Much of the film focuses on his journey to get sober, with the help of his eccentric AA sponsor (Jonah Hill), leading to some powerful and darkly funny scenes. As I wrote in my original review of the film, this is “a compelling biopic that’s inspiring without being treacly, and genuinely moving without veering into sentimentality.” It’s worth seeking out, and you can read my full review of the film right here.

The DVD includes no bonus features, but comes with a digital copy of the film.

Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far On Foot is an Elevation Pictures release. It’s 114 minutes and rated 14A.
