A memoir rather than a 'making of' documentary
4 July 2007 | by See all my reviews

I love the idea of a 'making of' documentary also being a personal 'memoir' by the filmmaker, as we are made to understand by the film's title. A great idea. It gave the film a lot more substance...actually made it a real film, and not just a tribute to another film.

It was interesting to see what had become of the people involved in Street Trash twenty years later. Some did not fare as well as others, and there was a real sense of melancholy about the final section of the film, unexpected and somewhat profound.

I wonder if the writer/producer anticipates making a film about his The Substitute. I'd be curious about his coverage of a franchise that clearly had smaller budgets as it wore on.
