I have to say, I see a lot of indie films each year, and this one is an exception. "Guy In Row Five" is the story of an extra (one of those people in the background of a movie or TV show that you see, but who never have any lines) who thinks he has booked a part as a lead on a big TV show. (Incidentally, the show is a big spoof called "Rodeo Nights" and the few scenes from it that are in the movie are HILARIOUS.) He spends the day documenting his final moments as an extra, taking us through his daily routine (which of course gets zanier as the film progresses.) The film is a great comment on Hollywood and pursuing what inspires you, and is full of laughs from beginning to end. It's a comedy with a true heart, which is a rare thing these days.
