This is my 2996th Review
Thanks to Niall of Raging Fluff for this recommendation.
Number of Times Seen – 1 (28 Mar 2017)
Brief Synopsis – Documentary that takes us through the process of two aspiring film makers who want to get their low budget film made.
My Take on it – This is another film that was recommended to me that I had never heard about beforehand.
It does a nice job showing how people must persevere through so much in order to finally find a way to make their dreams come true.
We get a very interesting behind the scenes view of how a low budget film could be made and what is needed in order to succeed in doing so.
The problem here IMHO is that despite being done in a deeply realistic fashion, the characters are not as sympathetic as one would hope for which takes away from the impact and enjoyment of this film.
Bottom Line – Shows how people must persevere in order to try to make their dreams come true. Gives us an interesting view of the behind the scenes of making a low-budget film and what it all entails to succeed. Since this is in documentary form, it comes across as deeply realistic. The characters aren’t the most sympathetic which takes away from the enjoyment a bit.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – In the “elevator sequence” that is briefly shown as part of the movie “Coven”, the actors that are portraying the doctors are wearing their driver’s licenses on their lab coats instead of hospital staff identification badges. (From IMDB)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy
