Go Fest Yourself

Dispatches from the festival frontlines.


There is more than one side to Martin Dockery. He's selfish, needy, ambitious, adventurous and afraid. And all angles of him are brilliantly thrown at the audience in Wanderlust. As Dockery takes us through his journeys in West Africa, in search of something (anything) significant, he slowly sheds his New York self and opens up to new ideas and outlooks on life. His unwavering storytelling and honest revelations aren't always the easiest to swallow, but are delivered with such intensity and animation that we can't help but to pay attention. That delivery, so precise that even his response to a cell phone ringing in the audience seemed staged, is unswerving. At times hilarious, and at times uncomfortable, Dockery's Wanderlust is both relatable and humbling.

Four and a half out of five stars.
