Fascinating documentary #minor spoiler#, 19 July 2005
Author: maxwellsmart

In 1997, Troy Duffy was dubbed the next big thing in Hollywood before he even got a movie into production. Eight years later, he still only has one film to his credit. "Overnight" follows Duffy's almost unfathomable fall from grace, in such a way that it is nearly impossible to turn away from the screen, making the viewer constantly wonder what blunder Duffy will make next. What is shocking is not so much that the script for the pretentious though passable film The Boondock Saints generated such enormous hype, but that Duffy was able to take an opportunity that every aspiring filmmaker and/or musician dreams about and not just blow it, but obliterate it.

From the outset, Duffy is established as an aggressive, take charge individual which could have been a great asset for him if he knew where to draw the line. As the documentary progresses, Duffy's hubris comes to the forefront. He fancies himself as a businessman extraordinare and visionary that can't be bothered to listen to anyone else's opinion in any given situation. Brick by brick, he tears apart his potential career, and we get to see it every step of the way. In the end, his boorish behavior led to him being blacklisted from Hollywood, and his band's album sold so poorly that they were released from their recording contract soon after its release. In a final piece of irony Duffy, after making it known that he's smarter than everyone else, failed to secure any backend profit rights for video and DVD sales of Boondock Saints. The film, after barely being released in theaters, went on to produce strong sales in the home video market.
