| A funny poisoned love letter to independent filmmaking
If you've seen a lot of independent films, and have a sense of humor about them (i.e. appreciate them but can laugh at some of the absurdities of them and their world), you should really enjoy this film. It's got a lot of inside jokes about student and low-budget filmmaking, but also lots of stuff that the average moviegoer should catch. Also, a very cool cast. Natasha Lyonne from "Slums of Beverly Hills" and "American Pie" is one of the stars, and there are lots of other recognizable faces.
