Living in Oblivion


Location: Redstone Theater

Dir. Tom DiCillo. 1995, 90 mins. 35mm. With Steve Buscemi, Catherine Keener, Peter Dinklage, Dermot Mulroney. Steve Buscemi directs the film-within-a-film in this ingenious movie about a day in the production of a no-budget movie. Inspired by the process of making his debut film, Johnny Suede, and frustrated by delays on his second feature, Tom DiCillo wrote this making-of comedy where everything goes wrong; smoke machines break, actors sleep with each other and give advice to the director, and dream sequences lead to real anxiety dreams.
