Three hapless independent filmmakers make the trek to the Sundance Film Festival and go through absolute hell in search for the elusive producer that is supposedly going to buy their independent feature film, all within 24 hours.
Three hapless independent filmmakers make the trek to the Sundance Film Festival and go through absolute hell in search for the elusive producer that is supposedly going to buy their independent feature film, all within 24 hours. With a producer who stole money from his mother's retirement account to fund the film, to a director who thinks she's the next Francois Truffaut, to an actor/editor who is a doormat for everyone, this motley crew of misfit filmmakers have a tough time navigating the chaotic world of the Sundance Film Festival. Ignorance, foolishness and above all ego drive the team to implosion as they struggle to realize their filmmaking dreams.Written by
The film was shot entirely during the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. See more »
Now for a Real Review...
The first reviewer stating that this film is the product of useless film programs obviously hasn't done their homework about the background of the filmmakers, nor understands the nuances of this hilarious film. Come to think of it, first reviewer aka Mr. Random, seems to have zero sense of humor whatsoever.
Now onto my review. This is a winning comedy about three hapless filmmakers who are trying to sell their completely unmarketable film to an elusive producer/sales agent. The lion's share of the movie is deftly handled by a trio of actors who shot on location, at Sundance, in the freezing cold, based on a scriptment.
98% of the film is dead on. Like any film, the pacing could have been better in sections, and the interview in the hotel with Ferrari and his intrepid trio was on shaky ground, but when you're shooting a film like this, which was totally improvised, it's a minor glitch in an otherwise very funny film, which is a comedic love letter to indie filmmakers everywhere.
Is it perfect? That's Stanley Kubrick's department, but it's definitely worth a view and anyone who understands film opposed to Random-70778 who must have been in a very bad mood when he wrote such a poison pen review.
