Storyline

A docu-drama about filming From Dusk Till Dawn (1996). Sarah Kelly takes a non-union film crew onto the set and on location near Barstow of this independent, non-union production. Camaraderie and a constant eye on the shooting schedule dominate interactions. Quentin Tarantino and George Clooney mug for Kelly's camera; Robert Rodriguez, Juliette Lewis and Fred Williamson talk about craft; we watch scenes being shot; and Kelly asks crew members why they do what they do. Also, the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees protests the non-union status of 'From Dusk Till Dawn', executive producer Lawrence Bender tells his side, and Kelly talks to a Variety reporter and others. What's the nature of an indie film? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

An Amazing Look at the Magic of Movie-making.
18 June 2005 | by Johnny-SackSee all my reviews

DVD extras can often be mind numbingly low on interest. Where the "making of" docs consist of boring technical computer crap and actors telling us what they do in the movie. However Full Tilt Boogie is the most in depth and funny making of I have ever seen. Not only does it show the commitment and passion (that wear's thin at times when the dreaded Union come in) of the filmmakers it also shows a intimate group of friends working together on a movie. It has a movie like narrative including a stylized openening, a conflict and a happy ending. It also features several great artists playing around and partying (including Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriquez etc). There are numerous stand out moments including the AD'S discussing who they find attractive, what George Clooney got for Juliette Lewis on her birthday, Quentin Tarantino singing "Momma Tried" and Michael Parks being predictably hilarious. Put all this together and what do you have? One of the rare treats where a making of documentary is better tho the actual film. A true Gem.
