The filmization of Quentin Tarantino's first script, with television actor George Clooney in his first starring feature-film role, Robert "El Mariachi" Rodriguez's From Dusk Till Dawn (1996) was a campy action horror thriller that became a major box-office hit. This off-beat documentary from Sarah Kelly covers the making of the explosive feature from an unusually intimate angle that will please not only fans of the principal cast and the director, but also those interested in the nuts and bolts of making a big-budget feature. Kelly goes to great length to see that seldom-seen crew members get a chance to shine as well as the stars. She also looks at what goes on after a day's shoot and records the crew and cast responding to various setbacks, like desert sandstorms, and catastrophes such as a botched explosion that nearly destroyed an entire set. … More

Critic Reviews for Full Tilt Boogie
An amusing account [of making From Dusk Till Dawn]... Much of it is off-the-cuff and entertaining.
A colorful and entertaining look behind the scenes of From Dusk Till Dawn
Longer than the movie whose construction it documents, this is nonetheless an entertaining (if sprawling) look behind the scenes.
Great documentary full of behind-the-scenes moments with stars and crew.
Even better than the film they're making! a must-see!
Full-Tilt Boogie is a tribute to the people who work behind the camera, but don't normally compete for golden statues on Oscar night.
Useful as a behind-the-scenes look at genre filmmaking on location, from the ground up, and, as such, should be worthwhile viewing by any young, aspiring would-be Tarantinos or Rodriguezes.
Audience Reviews for Full Tilt Boogie
Brilliant and long 'making of' for the From film Dusk Till Dawn. It covers absolutely everything in the film from effects and filming to interviews and behind the scenes footage :)
There is much info and chat with director Rodriguez, make up man Tom Savini and all the cast, especially Tarantino and Clooney who both play up for the camera and offer much more than just talk haha
This is very much like the doc 'Empire of Dreams' from the Star Wars franchise, in the same vein and top class in production, if only all films did this.
