Living in Oblivion and Eating Crow
Living in Oblivion
is a satiric look behind the scenes of the new wave of independent film-makers in America today - the world of Hal Hartley, Richard Linklater, Gus Van Sant, Jim Jarmusch and Quentin Tarantino. A media-fed generation who make post-modern films. Not since François Truffaut's Oscar-winning
Day For Night
has a film captured so well the nightmare of making movies. The screenplay is accompanied by 'Eating Crow', the diary which Tom DiCillo kept during the making of the film and which follows the film's genesis from a 15-minute short to the media frenzy surrounding its appearance at the Sundance Film Festival.
