| funny, well-acted, and way too true to life
As a director I know first hand, all actors are crazy. That isn't an insult, ask any actor. In this funny and charming film, actor Robert Margolis illustrates why.

His performance is dead on, as the actor who just won't give up on his dream, at any cost. And yet as doomed as his career choices seem, you find yourself rooting for this guy, not to get his life together, but to finally get a damn break.

This is a perfect portrait of an artist gone mad. Someone so committed to their dream, that they'll keep making the same mistakes over and over in the hopes of one day getting it right.

I've been there. And this so rings true.

Long live the artist!
