A research scientist and his narrator cruise the endless urban maze of Los Angeles trying to find order in the chaotic world of feature filmmaking.

Okay, so a guy from Ohio can't get his scripts made into movies but he sees all kinds of crappy scripts get made into movies. So he and his buddy go to LA to figure out how the movie business works. But as he is interviewing movie people the strangeness of LA turns his documentary into a movie, about documentaries.
I would love to get the script I wrote made into a movie because I know it will be a great one. And I was hoping this documentary would tell us the secret of writing great scripts. At first I was disappointed that it didn't but then I watched it again and saw that it did. The movie people he interviewed all say you have to have a story that makes the audience react emotionally. And then the documentary shows what the movie people are talking about with funny scenes that make you laugh.
I think this is the only satire ever made about documentaries. The guy even acts like Michael Moore. I recommend this DVD to anybody who loves movies or wants to work in the movie business.
