Director Mark Tapio Kines ran out of funds shortly after filming wrapped in August 1997, leaving him unable to complete post-production. Thanks to his experience as a web designer he was able to create an official website for the film ("forcor.com") to spark interest among the Internet community. A year later the director had received $90,000 in investments from complete strangers (including fans of principal star Melanie Lynskey) and a further $60,000 from friends and acquaintances, enabling the film to finally be completed. The makers of The Blair Witch Project later employed a similar technique of using the Internet to market their film. See more »
"Foreign Correspondents" tells two short stories back to back with a clumsy attempt at the end of the second to dovetail it into the first. Both have annoyingly indecisive protagonists so don't look for any heroics. Both remain unresolved at the end which some will find unsatisfying. Both are sufficiently lacking in complexity as to require plenty of filler; inconsequential stuff which doesn't add impetus to the plot. Nonetheless, for a low budget indie, the first story is surprisingly compelling and the second is surprisingly engaging. "FC" should be a moderately enjoyable watch for indie lovers into drama. (C)
