There is something genuinely sad going on here....
I am a big believer that quite often the supplemental documentaries included with DVDs can show you some things about the movie that you didn't realize, and even turn around your entire experience about the movie. In the best cases, these little featurettes can make even bad movies a little better, but such is not to be the case with Handmade Music, which is about the efforts involved in making the music for Dan in Real Life.
Unfortunately I don't have anything nice to say about the movie, which was a depressing failure, and this little documentary is little more than a lot of people congratulating each other on a job well done on a project that just flopped spectacularly. I can appreciate the effort that everyone put into making the music just right and how strongly they believed in the movie, but there is something truly sad about watching so many artistically professional people talk about their undying devotion to what turned out to be such a bad movie.
