We Made This Movie – Movie 65 of 365

06 Mar

WeMadeThisMovieDon’t judge a movie by the first ten minutes.  If I did, I would have missed out on this nice little indie movie.  We Made This Movie is about a group of teenager’s who are determined to make the “greatest movie ever made”.  The plot of their movie, it’s not much of a plot, they are going to do series of jackass-like stunts. Okay I don’t like stupid stunts and ten minutes in I’m thinking of just accepting the loss of my 99 cents when somewhere about this time you find out what this movie is really about.  And now I’m happy I stayed with it.

As you find out the reason behind them making this film, desperation.  Desperation of ending up like pretty much everyone in the small city of Buckstown, where your only option after school is working for the chicken factory or some other mediocre, dead end job.  They hope their movie will get the attention of their idol, actor Bill Pullman, the only success story out of Buckstown High.

I think what’s great about this movie is that it’s all shot from the perspective of them filming the movie. So you feel more in touch with the actors and you can forgive the amateurishness of the movie.  Between the attempts at shooting movie scenes we see vignettes of the hopelessness of their lives.  Maybe they aren’t poverty stricken or living in a war zone but that doesn’t mean their lives aren’t tragic.  It’s the tragedy so many of live in.  A life without many choices and no matter how much we try and changes things nothing seems to get better.

Do things get better? Does Bill Pullman produce their movie?  Well you’ll just have to watch to find out.
