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 treat.

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.

DeCillo keeps the film moving with the kind of frantic energy you find on a real film set, alternating between judicious use of black-and-white and garish color, all the while keeping both frazzled director Nick and the audience just a little off balance.
