Sorry. This film is not currently available.

The leading man has just had a disastrous one-night stand with the leading lady; the cinematographer is breaking up with the assistant director; the director's mother has wandered onto the set; and the dwarf hired for the dream sequence has a big attitude.

Delightfully ironic and full of laughs this film hits the spot for me . Katherine Keener is a joy to behold as is Steve Buscemi and the rest of this sterling cast.

I don't mind admitting that I've watched this twice previously, glad Fandor put it online.

Captures the moment to moment manic-depression of the creative act, embodied by Buscemi.

A light, absurdist film, staged at the blurred intersection of Dream and Reality.

It's still fun after all these years! Tom DiCillo's indie ode to Truffaut's "Day for Night" is silly but engaging.

really funny & goofy_i like the whole cast

Great movie! It's a very interesting movie about filmmaking. It's really meta with excellent portrayals of the personality types of actors and crew working on a film. You can definitely tell it was made in the 90s from the Richard Gere references and some of the clothing, but the movie doesn't seem dated at all. It's an excellent movie to stumble on and enjoy without knowing much about it.

Cut! Technical and human errors plague the set of a low budget movie. Very intelligently goofy. Through the takes and retakes we are treated to shifts and surprises, and the movie-within-a-movie gets kicked over the moon by acting that can dim or intensify with the seeming ease of a rheostat. A new favorite.

My friend Periwinkle worked with Steve Buscemi once. He said he ate broccoli every single day. Is that true? I don't know. Ask Peri. Is this a good film? Absolutely.

my fast forward sucks
