Good doc
20 July 2006 | by (Dallas, US) – See all my reviews

This is a really good documentary that discusses the independent film movement and filmmakers. It mostly it just covers films from the United States, and very briefly mentions Italian NeoRealism and the French New Wave. The documentary covers a lot of the early "indie" filmmakers to the latest indie movement.

I found it interesting to hear a number of independent filmmakers speak not only about their influences, but also about their experiences of working outside of the studio system.

If you like independent films or any of the filmmakers listed in the cast I'd say it's worth a watch since it's only about an hour long.
