A clever film about multiple idiosyncratic creatives dueling their internal states and outward posturing with each other and the creative process - a loaded topic handled with just enough sincerity. The film's commenting on itself through film method adds to the theme and doesn't distract. I do think the film cuts deeper if you've ever been here (because you've probably already committed seppoku).

Enjoyable for probably anyone who has an interest or is active in independent filmmaking, this begins with the smaller problems, such as bad lensing, forgotten lines, and light blow-outs before showing the bigger problems like the egos of actors or creative differences. It's an amusing film that thankfully hardly ever pries away from focusing on the filmmaking -- it's no masterpiece, but it's a light piece of entertainment with some good jokes and on-point characters and acting.

Apart from the unmistakable filmschool stench and the dull 90ies visuals, an amusing little film about the misadventures of a low-budget filmcrew. Buscemi, Mulroney and (especially) Keener all do fine work but even if they hadn't it would have all been worth it to see Dinklages rant against dream sequences featuring dwarves.

Beautifully observed behind the scenes look at indie film-making is brilliantly sharp and witty (almost an indie spin on THE PLAYER) and remains consistently offbeat and unpredictable. Helped by a marvellous cast of future stars, with Keener exceptional, but almost matched by Buscemi, Mulroney and especially Le Gros, in a wickedly funny send-up of the pretensions of a Hollywood heart throb (though publically denied, his resemblance to Brad Pitt is too obvious!)

this was hilarious the way it depicted how EVERYTHING went wrong on the film set. it was cathartic in that sense. the only problem was that it felt like it was grasping for a deeper meaning through cryptic, vague dialogue. having that added dimension made the film feel like it was missing something, because it didn't properly address it. on the whole though, in terms of showing the dynamics on a film set, absolutely brilliant.

I really like how this movie gives you an idea about how is it really when you make movies. An artistic expression which depends of several people doing their things perfectly at the same time, when an external sound ruins the whole scene must be so frustrating, and finally you end up compromising the art or just losing your mind. Also is very nice to see Steve Buscemi leading.

I loved the concept of a B&W film about filmmaking that showed the film-within-the-film in color, but that's dumped early on. LeGros was a fantastic foil to Buscemi but we didn't get that for long either. The hip-hop boom guy is a complete misfire, as are the romantic plots. It should be the job of a comedy of frustrations to escalate throughout, and that doesn't happen. This is a film not just small but simple. There are chuckles to be had but I was definitely left wondering, "Oh, Is that all?"

Steve Buscemi is great as a director of an independent film. The supporting cast is also really good, especially Catherine Keener. I would especially recommend this to anyone who has ever been involved in low budget film or theatre.

A great movie about making movies. Really shows you the frustration involved in putting together a film, which is like a child in the eyes of the crew, particularly in the eyes of the director. The characters are at times over the top but also feel real, especially if you've ever worked with actors or directors.

I found it sort of annoying to watch. I certainly related with it... But possibly too much. It brought out too many thoughts of annoying situations from my life.

A darkly funny look at the highs and (mostly) lows of low-budget filmmaking. Particularly strong on the inner fears and ego-bruises of creative people. And Keener is luminous.
