Celluloid #1

Alternately grating and hilarious, Steve Stasso's independent feature is an acerbic send-up of American celebrity. Steve Buckley plays an unctuous movie director who's been coasting on his debut film for ten years; desperate to jump-start his career, he scores an interview with a drug-addled actress (Julie Atlas Muz) whose strong-arming agent keeps her on a short leash but can't prevent her coming apart on camera as the questions become increasingly personal. Stasso's narrative can be rough sledding, with the tension between the three principals pitched too high, but he savages the scuzzy complicity between celebrities and the media. 78 min.
