Ep. 66 - "American Movie" (1999)

This week's movie is a legitimate classic - a 1999 documentary entitled "American Movie". We're digging it up because maybe the world's forgotten it, or maybe you're just one of those folks who missed it at the time. In any case, it's a goddamned treasure - and you should see it.

Performers of note: Mark Borchardt, Mike Schank, Chris Smith

A few disconnected thoughts on this movie, which, yes, everyone should watch.

• Something I find striking is that Mark actually has talent. Yes, his ambition exceeds his resources, but some of his images are awfully striking.

• A few years ago I was writing a script and among the characters were a pair of odd-couplish friends, one loud and gregarious, one soft and quiet, very much in the Jay and Silent Bob mold, except that the second would speak more often than Silent Bob. I just couldn't get a handle on them, exactly how they should talk, until I realized… it should be Mark and Mike from this movie. And once I realized that it fell into place completely.

• A feature I wrote was produced by a fellow with the last name of Borchardt. I confess that upon his initial e-mail to me that was the first thing I noticed, and I immediately became concerned.

Really enjoyed this episode. I saw the movie about ten years back. It definitely dials into that whole making movies in the woods with your mates that we all went through at one point or another.

I tried to show the doc to Mrs Faldor but she noped out when they tried putting the guys head through the cupboard door...

It's taken three attempts to listen to this and I've only made it to the trailer. I will finish it as soon as people stop needing my attention.

Haha, I'll add it to the queue.

The queue:

1.) Martin's shitty movie.
2.) Tyler's shitty movie.
3.) Your shitty movie.

lol, we should request user submissions more often!

I'm pretty sure I've seen Martin's shitty movie but now I want to see Tyler's shitty movie.
Just finished (except credits) my shitty movie, should have it up in the next few days for restricted viewing.
