This Is Not a Film

"OK"

This Is Not a Film Review


Michael wants to find his long lost ex-girlfriend; figures he'll make a film pleasing for information about her whereabouts in the hopes that someone will see the movie, then tell him where she is, a la "six degrees of separation." This Is Not a Film is, of course, a film -- a fictional one at that, and with a rather weak idea at its heart. A camera and sound guy follow Michael through his day, selling shoes, drinking coffee, doing the crossword, and so on. It's a self-referential "here we go walkin' through the city and talkin' about making a movie" movie, though at least everyone involved is reasonably professional. It's not too terribly long, either, and in this one-joke gig, that's a good thing.
