Living in Oblivion is at times nuanced and has layers of meaning underneath the basic plot. The movie was well-acted and there was some perceptible transformation on the part of the two main characters, yet the overall level of he characters' frustration dominated the film to the point where the ending was distinctly dissatisfying, and the heaviness of their frustration is what lingered for me.

A comedy about the day in the life of a director. Interesting to think about the egos, people, and how to work as a director when there are so many personalities trying to collaborate and make something as complicated as a film happen.

This rip on indie filmmaking is both realistic and amusing, as it peruses through the many possible scenarios of poor acting and behind-the-scenes drama -- all told very stylishly and cleverly.

A documentary masquerading as fiction.

Want to know what is to make a film when you have no money and an Brad Pitt resembling awful actor? Then this is your movie. A love song about making films with excellent performances. The best choice to explain your students a few things about filming.

As a filmmaker myself, it's wonderful therapy.

Labeled as a comedy, I didn't find myself constantly laughing but I did think it was a very good movie where Catherine Keener really shines.

i'd have to see it again to be sure of my rating, but i loved it when i saw it in manhattan in 1995.

So clever, so funny, quite painful in places and shrewd in others. Ought to have a larger following, it's such a well-done skewering.

It doesn't get any more realistic than this take on low-budget independent filmmaking.

I love every scene in this movie. The cast couldn't be more perfect.

Filme em construção, meta-filme ou crónica de uma produção falhada: "Living in Oblivion" encaixa em cada uma dessas categorias, mas não é isso que o impede de ser uma desastrosa cagada, em vez do filme simpático para o qual até tinha potencial. Estávamos em 1995 e, com a explosão da Miramax, existiam condições e hype para um indie estrear a cada quinze dias. Só isso pode explicar o facto de alguém ter ido para a frente com um argumento tão sem graça como este. Fiquei mal disposto nos últimos 20 minutos.

A well-acted film with well-written dialogue, "Living in Oblivion" drives the theme of how hard filmmaking is into the ground. Although true, the point is made in the first part of the film, and the other two parts are just repetitive. All three parts are fun in their own rights, but they do not meld together as well as they should. It should have stayed a short film.

Brilliant, hilarious filmmaking.

Hilarious and surprisingly very accurate.

A vintage scrap of the 90s that showcases a young Buscemi in the shambley light of a struggling NYC theater actor and a simple plot which pokes fun at film production

Estéticamente realizada, está comedia es una mirada a la complejidad de la produccion desde todos los angulos posibles.
