An insightful comedy with roots in the great mockumentary movement of the 1980s, the film follows an impassioned and misguided wannabe filmmaker, John Viener (a comedian playing himself), who throws everything away to make "a film that's gonna win Sundance." Seeking advice from friends, industry veterans and technicians, his quest becomes a guided tour of what to do, and, more pointedly, what not to do. Written by
A funny, knowing treatment of independent, low-budget filmmaking whose tongue is firmly planted you know where. If you suffer from high seriousness, especially of the artistic kind, this welcome dose of silliness will help keep you on planet earth.
