Storyline

Tracing the arc of one man's "life-changing panic" in the months before his impending wedding, aspiring (and by most accounts not very promising) actor Richie sets out on a summer-long odyssey to compete as a demolition derby driver throughout the Northeast. Risking what little he has - namely his engagement and his neck - he struggles to fulfill a lifelong dream in the face of no money, no skills, and little hope. This largely improvised film is an inspired mix of fictional scenes and interactions with the real-life denizens of demolition derbies, all characters in their own right, who think the camera crew is making a straight documentary.

Documentary? Drama?
5 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

I saw this film at the Phoenix Film Festival but unfortunately I was watching another movie right before it and missed the first couple minutes of the movie, and also any comments the director made before it began.

So, I saw this movie as documentary. It was filmed like a documentary, it was shot like a documentary, and the people seemed completely real. Only afterwards during the Q & A did I realize that this was a drama, or maybe a mock documentary. It appears that the lead actors were... well actors playing a role. Though, of course, most of it was drawn from within. But there was an outline of a story beforehand.

This film was just interesting. I think about half way through the movie was when I realized how good this film was. The lead (Rick Gomez) did a great job.

In truth, I still don't know exactly was *real* and what wasn't. For example, I two leads (Rick and Jenny) did get married though I presume that the melodrama in the movie was not real. I think. I'm not even sure. Amy Redford (Robert's daughter) did a really good job as the "fixer" of other girl's boyfriends and hence, I assume all of that was story. But it was interesting because these actors would interact with non-actors while they were in character.

All in all, a very interesting film.
