All the Love You Cannes was a very entertaining documentary. I am a new Troma fan and a lover of independent movies, especially those in the horror genre. I recently attended Dragoncon in Atlanta,GA and met Lloyd Kaufman who was very nice.
The Troma team use some original techniques in trying to get the Troma name out there in this doc. It seems that while Kaufman has a good head on his shoulders, some of his employees(particularly one obnoxious fellow) do not. The doc shows the struggle of a small studio fighting to get attention away from the majors.
Particularly the theme of breaking the monopoly that the major studios have on not only the Cannes film festival but the business in general is always prevalent in the doc. If there's one educational thing about this film, it is that most "independent" movies are not that independent at all. A film that is truly independent will have to fight to be seen, and tactics out of the norm may have to be used.
