Storyline

A docu-drama about filming From Dusk Till Dawn (1996). Sarah Kelly takes a non-union film crew onto the set and on location near Barstow of this independent, non-union production. Camaraderie and a constant eye on the shooting schedule dominate interactions. Quentin Tarantino and George Clooney mug for Kelly's camera; Robert Rodriguez, Juliette Lewis and Fred Williamson talk about craft; we watch scenes being shot; and Kelly asks crew members why they do what they do. Also, the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees protests the non-union status of 'From Dusk Till Dawn', executive producer Lawrence Bender tells his side, and Kelly talks to a Variety reporter and others. What's the nature of an indie film? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Not That Good
19 August 2005 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

The problem with this type of documentary is that if you have little interest in the source movie you will have little interest in its conception and behind the scenes footage . I found FROM DUSK TILL DAWN a ridiculous and bizarre mixed genre film that starts off with a couple of desperate men who have murdered sixteen people take a family hostage , they flee to Mexico and then the movie turns into a horror film

This documentary might have had some interest for me if it had been done properly but it hasn't been done properly . Even if you didn't like FROM DUSK TILL DAWN imagine how interesting FULL TILT BOOGIE might have been if someone asked Danny Trejo if his time in the maximum security penal system brought anything to his performance: " So Danny , you stab Tarantino's character through the hand . Did you see anything like that inside ? " whereby Trejo recounts all the violent incidents he's witnessed behind bars . For me the most memorable moment of FDTD is the Salma Hayek dance sequence , it's also one of the most memorable sequences in modern cinema and guess what ? Salma Hayek is not interviewed ! Instead we have to put up with endless scenes of assistants running back and forward with lunch for the cast and mundane interviews with the actors and director

I guess people who subscribe to Fangoria magazine and horror fans who attend the conventions will like FULL TILT BOOGIE since there's some interesting behind the scenes make up effects on show but this never comes close to rivalling HEARTS OF DARKNESS ( The documentary about the making of APOCALYPSE NOW ) as the definitive making of documentary
