A group of filmmakers try to find director John Hughes to try and complete a documentary about John Hughes and his films.
A nice love letter to the late filmmaker, the movie includes a lot of interviews from several actors and friends whom had worked with the reclusive writer/director.
The film however never really develops fully, it is mainly a film about a bunch of fans tracking down their hero. Which sadly they never do, and sadly they now will never get the chance.
Where the film does succeed the most is that it gives us a very intimate portrait of John Hughes through the people that worked with him, and the next generation of filmmakers he influenced.
Their will never be another John Hughes and watching this film makes you realize what a unique and great talent he was.
An excellent look into the films and impact of John Hughes. As these young filmmakers travel to Chicago to try and get an interview from the iconic director we get insights about the man and his films from not only the people who he has worked with and other directors he has inspired but also from the most recent generation his films have captivated.
It's a well edited and entertaining film with a build up to see if they can truly get the attention of the man himself. It's a fun look back on the films as well as a look into what Hollywood is doing wrong when making films with a younger audience in mind.
This stupid piece of shit is a total waste of time! What I don't understand is they get some good people for interviews and either don't ask any good questions or just cut them out so the directors can get more face time. This is really sad because John Hughes deserves a real documentary done by real filmmakers, instead of a bunch of jerkoffs who like to hear themselves talk.
Can a documentary have spoilers? If so, well then: spoiler alert.
Any documentary about John Hughes is going to be worth watching, if only to relive so many classic moments from his films. The inclusion of recent interviews with cast members, collaborators, and other filmmakers inspired by his films are a real asset as well. But what keeps this documentary from being anything special is the way the filmmakers chose to focus on themselves. What originally was just to be a doc on Hughes' films and their impact was changed into a film focusing on the documentarians' quest to get an interview with the notoriously recluse director. Perhaps if they had succeeded, it would have been worth the work and made sense to include it; but the fact that they failed to get an interview, meet him, or even get a response from him makes that whole aspect of the film anticlimactic and pointless.
