Trivia

The film was shot entirely on a Panasonic AG-DVX100A digital camcorder that was modified with after-market components. The camera was upgraded with a system able to pull true HD straight from the CCD chips, and was also fitted with a 35mm lens adapter. So, when accompanied by a five lens primes package, the camera produced an amazing film look. See more »

Breaking new ground in film-making
7 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let me just say that if Entertainment Tonight got wind of the budget of this film and the cast it has and the story it tells, they would be running to do interviews with the people behind it. Most every commercial you see has a bigger budget than this film but not a fraction of the entertainment value. I think if it was marketed right it could become one of the biggest profit margins in movie history and people would look back and say, "The Waiter" pioneered in a new era in movie making.

What I really love about the film itself is the way you need to think while you are watching it. If you are one of those mindless zombie types watching a movie, this may not be the film for you. This movie is so deep on so many different levels. It's one of those movies that you will catch something different every time you watch it. I can't wait to see it in the theater again like I did at the World Premiere in Houston.
