Just saw this at the Traverse City Film Festival. It was the best fiction film there – very funny, fresh dialog, and tightly edited. Alex Karpovsky plays the central character, and is a great new (to me) talent. He and Tarik Lowe (also co-writer with director Daniel Schecter) have a chemistry that compares well with the greats. While it's ideal for people who love the movie-making process, anyone will like this. The guys are co-editors of an independent film, trying to save it while the director works out his neuroses mostly off-screen. (Kevin Corrigan seems -- based on his post-screening appearance -- more than a bit nuttier in real life than his character.) Really hope it gets distribution.
Two New York film editors balance their personal relationships while reworking a movie in crisis.
