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

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.

So you wanna make a movie? Well, first, you should see "Living in Oblivion," Tom DiCillo's savagely funny satire of the world of independent filmmaking.

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.
