I ordered the DVD. This is a seriously cool film and pretty funny. Its nice to see indi stuff mocking indi stuff. So, it kind of works both ways...if you think indi's overrated, its nice to see it mocked. But if you are a true indi afficiando...this movie is quie refreshing.
As an aside, the acting is pretty top notch. I feel like I'm in on the ground floor. You must see this movie.
I laughed so hard, my sides split and laughing gets to the point where it all hurts seriously.
"It only hurts when I laugh" is what happens to me when I see all the crazy stuff and people and wonderful lines in R2PC (2000).
I started work in movies when I as 18 years old (1963).
I was the star of a college production titled The Easter Parade (1963 Mike Mideke Films - Antioch College Ohio) starring David Roger Allen (my birth name back then, which I used...I changed my name to "Tex Allen" when I joined SAG years later, due to too many guys named or claiming "David Allen" for their "one of a kind" "SAG Name"...I played "Jesus in Chicago" in this movie....dressed in sheets to simulate a toga, etc. etc.).
Anyway, now it's 2012 and I've been in the movie biz damn near 50 years, and I've been "around the block," so to speak, in the movie biz.
I've seen it all, done it all, and mercifully, I'm still alive (not rich, but you can't have everything!).
The R2PC (2000) movie says it all re: hustlers, weirdos, awful people, wonderful people in the movie biz.
I loved it.
I love it.
See this movie. You'll love it, too.
Written by Tex Allen, SAG Actor.
It's the story of a guy trying to make a film to win Sundance. It's sort of a mockumentary. The guy's interactions with real life film people are really funny.
This should be seen by anyone who wants to make a film.
