Synopsis

The story follows a single disaster-filled day in the life of a director as he desperately tries to fulfill his vision and shoot his movie despite whining actors, bumbling crew members, exploding lights and malfunctioning fog machines.

Our take

Cinema has provided its share of films about the many challenges of filmmaking, but few—if any—realize as disastrous circumstances as Tom DiCillo’s Living in Oblivion. Virtuoso performances from Catherine Keener & Steve Buscemi bolster this remarkably accurate and distinctly hilarious cult gem.
