LIVING IN OBLIVION
Director: Tom DiCillo Run Time: 89 min. Release Year: 1995
Starring: Catherine Keener, Danielle von Zerneck, Dermot Mulroney, James Le Gros, Steve Buscemi
“A very funny picture that presents the world of independent filmmaking as a nightmare of conflicting egos, budgetary squalor and incompetence.” – San Francisco Chronicle
The leading man has just had a disastrous one-night stand with the leading lady; the cinematographer is breaking up with the assistant director; the director’s mother has wandered onto the set; and the little person hired for the dream sequence has a big attitude.
From award-winning writer/director Tom DiCillo (JOHNNY SUEDE) comes an inventive, hilarious look at the movie-making business. Steve Buscemi (FARGO), Catherine Keener (BEING JOHN MALKOVICH), Dermot Mulroney (ABOUT SCHMIDT), James Le Gros (PHANTASM 2) and Peter Dinklage (GAME OF THRONES) star in this “smart, well-crafted” (San Francisco Gate) and “savagely funny satire” (The Washington Post).
