Living in Oblivion (Vivir rodando)

Roll that motherfucking camera, Wolfie!


Following up his debut, Johnny Suede, director Tom DiCillo presented this filmmaking comedy that allegedly draws much from DiCillo’s experiences on the set of the 1991 Brad Pitt vehicle. Steve Buscemi stars as Nick Reve, the long-suffering director of a no-budget independent film. If he’s not dealing with his heartbroken director of photography Wolf (Dermot Mulroney), Reve is trying to keep his leading lady Nicole (DiCillo mainstay Catherine Keener) happy or ignore the pseudo-auteur suggestions of Pitt-inspired name-actor Chad Palomino (James LeGros). All the while, the audience can’t ever be sure if the scene they’re watching is a dream or reality.

It’s not the best movie that I saw, but it’s entertaining, more if you’ve lived through a shooting and you see the different roles caricatured.
