Storyline

Feature documentary film that takes the viewer on an intimate roller coaster of pain and joy as actor Donnie Faught climbs his way out of the backwoods of Arkansas to success in the city of angels. Along this journey, passionate (and volatile) relationships are ignited, but some are agonizingly sacrificed, all for the ultimate dream of making it on the big screen. Faught's unwavering determination to succeed in an industry that swallows people whole and spits them out broken, is a testament to his burning passion that refuses to be extinguished. Written by Radical Humility Productions

Deeply personal, moving film.
19 July 2013 | by (Austin, TX) – See all my reviews

While no one would call this a polished film, it is also not one you are likely to forget anytime soon. In the vein of American Movie, The Devil in Daniel Johnson, and The Wild and Wonderful Whites, this film is powerful in its obvious reality.

The story is as old as any ever told of a man willing to throw away everything for his dream, no matter how unlikely. The main character is a simple, sincere, quite possibly mentally disturbed, and overall inspiring anti-hero. I felt at times guilty for what felt like macabre voyeurism in watching this apparent train wreck unfold, but I could not turn away. This was, after all, a man bearing his soul, warts and all, to the camera for ELEVEN YEARS.

Fascinating.
