Storyline

Being in show business is tough, but being an actor in Denver is tougher, so when performer and full-time computer repairman, Arthur Martinez, hires two indie filmmakers to make a feature film with him as the lead, he realizes he's in over his head. "You guys have ruined my life," Arthur says one moment immediately following with, "This is the best film I'll ever be in." The filmmakers scrap the genre film Arthur had intended them to make - instead quickly designing an entirely new project based around his real-life persona, which becomes more and more elusive as the production steams ahead. Once Arthur realizes what the filmmakers are up to, his protective measure is to hide behind a mask, keeping the filmmakers questioning: are any of Arthur's moments on camera truthful or is it all just a performance in the end?

Sleeping Pill
10 July 2017 | by westsideschlSee all my reviews

Very important indicator of a cheap movie - no subtitles; echoey audio levels all over the place; really poor enunciation. So, that tells you something about where intelligent dialogue fits into the scheme of things. Watch the first five minutes then the last five and you'll see no difference between them and also the rest of the movie. Very slow droning on of just talking heads in one room or another for an hour plus. Plot? Someone wants to have a film made with him in it so the very low budget film crew produces something - but not sure? I skip commercials, but even they are entertaining and intelligently useful by comparison.
