The Outsider gives a very inside look at what it means to be a filmmaker. Jarecki follows legendary writer/director James Toback (The Gambler, Two Girls and a Guy, Bugsy) through the insane making of his recent thriller When Will I Be Loved starring Neve Campbell. The documentary chronicles all phases of Toback's wild filmmaking journey as he shoots his movie in 12 days without a script and battles to get it distributed. Candid interviews with Woody Allen, Robert Downey, Jr., Mike Tyson, Harvey Keitel, Norman Mailer, Brooke Shields, Barry Levinson and more reveal the complex life and work of this compulsive gambler and exceptional film talent.

This film defines contemporary film mounting (as in to mount a play) in new light
17 September 2007 | by shepherd-27See all my reviews

I would be interested in see all of the impossible to see music list and performers' credits. For the most part all that music was so brilliantly melded into the film that it was unnoticed. The title content and performances, and the music insertions were subtle and superbly appropriate. 'Loved this film and cannot find it replayed on Sundance anytime soon.

This is more of a request to publish the music titles and performance artists' names and descriptions.

Most excellent in in the content of the film is the fact that this is an almost to teaching tool for young film, TV, and stage directors. The effect of non-objective direction is the sense for the actors that they are in a relaxed and trusting process with a director who is more of a coach and certainly not a bit of a dictator providing the actors with a thorough sense of self-assurance and confidence. What a sense of relief and release for an actor to feel very certain that he or she is relieved of the pressure of pleasing the director and that what really happens is that he lets them discover what satisfies them and where the best place is for them to be in in the context of the total production. Mailer's comment to this point is the thesis, them, and center of the film, quite improvisational and almost unintentionally. And this director embodies what Mailer "writes."
