Movie Info

While the rest of America slept, DIY filmmaker/musician Giuseppe Andrews (a one-time teen actor in Independence Day and Detroit Rock City) has made over 30 experimental features with titles like Doily's Summer of Freak Occurrences, Trailer Town and Utopia Blues. Set in some demented alternate universe (i.e. Ventura, California), they are populated by real-life alcoholics and drug addicts, trash-talking senior citizens and trailer park residents dressed in cow outfits and costume-shop wigs, acting out booze-fueled vignettes of severe psychosis filtered through Giuseppe's John Waters-meets-Harmony Korine-meets-Werner Herzog sensibility.

Critic Reviews for Giuseppe Makes A Movie

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (8)

  • The movie is designed as a nonfiction gross-out comedy, and on those narrow terms it delivers.

  • Mr. Rifkin's own style is rough and ready, and efficient. We quickly grasp Mr. Andrews's casual appeal and how his films resemble community theater productions.

  • Andrews isn't the first creative type to attempt to cast ineptitude as a virtue, but damn if he doesn't just about make his case in Giuseppe Makes a Movie.

  • This is a weirdly compelling look at a weirdly compelling auteur.

  • Rifkin clearly understands the boundless drive and feverish creativity that fuels Andrews. Giuseppe Makes a Movie celebrates the redemptive essence and raw power of barebones filmmaking and the meaning it can bring to damaged lives.

  • I'm not sure I'd ever want to sit through one of Andrews' movies, but watching him make one is an unexpectedly lovely experience.
