A very different take on Bollywood!
26 February 2016 | by (South Africa) – See all my reviews

Jennifer Lynch, daughter of cult filmmaker David Lynch, a recovering addict and hard- working single mother, returns to the director's chair with an ambitious project that is to test her skills and the entire crew's sanity. What follows is a document that brings you behind the scenes on the set of Lynch's Bollywood/Hollywood action film about a man- eating snake goddess. Penny Vozniak, the director, is the one responsible for this "behind- the-scenes" madness that witnesses how Lynch slowly loses her grip over a much- extended eight-month shoot. And the result is this crazy journey into the shire madness behind the camera. Among the many setbacks suffered are a technician's strike forcing production to move to Kerala; an 11-day wait for dailies to become available; and cops being called in following complaints about filming at prayer time in a Muslim neighborhood. Showing signs of flagging under pressure, Lynch is told bluntly by producer Menon: "If you can't hack it, quit." A must see.
