Tom [=DiCillo=]'s 1995 film, starring Creator/SteveBuscemi, Catherine Keener, Dermot Mulroney and Creator/PeterDinklage is a quintessential movie about movies. It tells the story of Nick, the director of a low-budget indie film, trying to keep everything together as his production is plagued with an insecure actress, a megalomaniac star, a pretentious, beret-wearing director of photography and lousy catering. Divided in three acts, each representing a different scene to shoot, this film is an essential for amateur filmmakers.
