Is It Real? Does It Matter?
2 July 2015 | by kr98664See all my reviews

Is it real? That's the one question I had after watching this documentary. After some professional-grade thinking, I still don't know. And to tell the truth, it really doesn't matter. If everything was real, then this was an interesting true story. If it was a sly mockumentary, then it was still a fun movie. Don't beat yourself up trying to solve a riddle that may not have an answer.

Per the current reviews here so far, I have posted the first review by a person outside of a film festival. If nothing else, this would look good on a resume. I should also clarify I'm not literally outside a film festival, or even in close proximity to one. I'm actually at home as I type this, having watched the movie on a certain streaming movie service named after a major South American jungle.

The movie was quite intriguing. It's the story of a man making VERY low budget films. Throw in a little domestic drama and a somewhat surreal supporting cast, and you've got a pleasant way to spend an hour and a half.

Without giving anything away, the last part of this movie did seem to fall apart. Still, the movie kept my interest the whole time. And was it all scripted? I can't really tell, and don't really want to know. Okay, fine, maybe I do. But until then, it was still quite the enjoyable ride.
