A beautiful, relevant film.
10 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As the director of this film my opinion is of course, biased but I must say, "The Foot Shooting Party" is a relevant film for our times. Its message is delivered beautifully by all of the cast most particularly Leonardo DiCaprio and Michael Rapaport. Five young men in a rock 'n roll band on the verge of success, get together to shoot lead singer/songwriter Bud (DiCaprio) in the foot so he won't have to go off to war. Gathered around a bottle of Tequilla, a pistol, and a target painted on Bud's foot--with red fingernail polish, so he won't blow his foot off--the evening degenerates into a passionate debate over what is right, what our obligations are to self and country, and whether anything any one person does can make a difference. The suspense--will he shoot himself in the foot or not, and the poignancy of this baby faced boy (DiCaprio turned 19 on the set) confronting such a serious decision is visceral.
