Quentin Tarantino's friend and fellow Video Archives clerk Roger Avary worked as the cinematographer on this film. He found Rich Turner to be very funny, and later cast him as the American tourist in his debut feature, Killing Zoe (1993). In addition to playing minor roles in both Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction (1994), Turner would later play a minor role in Boogie Boy (1998), written and directed by Craig Hamann, who also worked at Video Archives and who co-wrote this film.

Based upon seeing what little footage remains of this movie, I don't think that the full-length version would have been a great movie. What's seen here is a jumble of different scenes that each advance the story very little. Tarantino clearly didn't yet have a full grasp of more proper ways to plot and execute a story. Still, despite this (and the very primative production values and acting), the footage is a fascinating cinematic document of sorts. The movie is full of ideas (and dialogue) that Tarantino later polished up and reused in other movies (primarily TRUE ROMANCE.) So while this is mostly amateur hour as a *movie*, it is very entertaining as a cinematic notebook.
