...you'll love "Overnight Sensation".

This movie is quite enjoyable. Filmed (mostly) at The Sundance Film Festival.

A favorite moment of mine was the director of the super-violent "Pulp Fiction" ripoff citing his inspiration as "Tarantino, John Woo, Robert Rodriguez, but mostly Tarantino"

The idea behind the plot is ingenious. The only thing that detracts from this film is bad ADR work, but it's only noticeable in a few places.

Overall a 7 out of 10.
