When a headstrong filmmaker gets a lowly job at the worst film production house in town, he leads a disillusioned film crew into hijacking their company's latest movie, filming a better version behind the back of their overbearing director. Written by
In the scene one day before the premiere of "Marauders of the Door of Doom," Rick's desk calendar includes the following: "Pick color for red carpet," "Don't forget that one thing," "Book hotels - something cheap," and "Breakfast w/Gilda - find excuse to leave early!" See more »
When Ren Fields flees the transit train, hazy reflections of bystanders are visible in one of the train windows. However, no one is there. Non-actor bystanders had wandered through the shot, requiring them to be digitally removed. While surrounding detail allowed them to be realistically painted out of the shot, the reflections remained, leaving an unintended ghostly effect. See more »
This was a fantastic film. Some may say it was great for for being shot on a low budget, or with volunteer actors, or because the filmmakers are in their early 20's. While all of those may be true, it's not necessary to qualify a "it's a great film because..." statement. It's just a great film anyway, on any budget, with any type of actors and a writer/director of any age.
It's very tight with nothing useless and the characters are very lovable, yet real. It was funny and poignant.
The director is 23, yet he's already making a film about a character that truly loves film. Many young directors' protagonists are glorious heroes, but Parker's is a real, passionate young man whose head is focused on the quality of his work, not on the financial benefits of making film.
It's a filmmaker's film, but good for everyone!
