A hip indie version of Truffaut's Day for Night, Living in Oblivion celebrates the very act of filmmaking as grand folly, a triumph of absurdist heroism.

A very funny picture that presents the world of independent film making as a nightmare of conflicting egos, budgetary squalor and incompetence.

"Oblivion" has a surrealistic, guilty-fun quality. It feels almost too good to be true.

So you wanna make a movie? Well, first, you should see "Living in Oblivion," Tom DiCillo's savagely funny satire of the world of independent filmmaking.
