Slight but smart, and it doesn't overstay its welcome.

The segment in which Nick (Steve Buscemi) attempts to film a dream sequence (not unlike the famous one from TV's Twin Peaks) featuring a dwarf named Tito (Peter Dinklage) is worth the rental/purchase price alone.

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.

DiCillo effectively uses dream sequences and black-and-white film to spoof the pretentiousness of indie films, but remains thoughtful and clever throughout. And every performance is spot-on.

Probably the best and funniest of the mid-'90s crop of movies about making movies.

A valentine to the independent film world, DiCillo's version of Truffaut's Night for Day offers a smart, amusing look at the perils of low-budget filmmaking; the ensemble acting is superb.

Really clever little comedy about low-budget filmmaking with Buscemi at his best.

Sluggish, dumbly overpraised farce about an indie movie I would never see, but I still might pick over this one.

Meaty and witty, the sort of product that rewards a closer examination even as it buggers intimacy.
