The fact that Hollywood is filled with losers and freaks isn't anything new, but this portrait has small bits of charm. It would have been nice if the filmmaker had pushed a little more into the idea of Hollywood, as well as his own relationship to it. There are traces of "Sherman's March" and "The Target Shoots Back" but unlike Ross McElwee or Christopher Wilcha, this director keeps things at a pretty superficial level. It's too bad too, since issues like the culture, economics, and seduction of Hollywood are issues that are worth exploring. Additionally, I there seemed to be something questionably ethical about his tendency to interview people when they're inebriated.
