Film Reviews: 

A very funny 1994 comedy by New York writer-director Tom DiCillo, cinematographer of Stranger Than Paradise, about the nightmares of shooting an American independent feature. The story comes in three acts, and even though the first is funnier than the second and the second funnier than the third, the whole thing is still pretty entertaining. The comedy here recalls at times Truffaut's Day for Night, though the characters are much thinner. With Steve Buscemi, James LeGros, Catherine Keener, Dermot Mulroney, and Danielle von Zernick. 91 min. By Jonathan Rosenbaum , Chicago Reader
