Lisa Picard Is Famous

Hoping to capture the precise moment when anonymity turns to fame, a director decides to make a documentary about an actor on the verge of success. Notorious for a racy cereal commercial, Lisa Picard (Laura Kirk) already has her own unofficial Web site, but her big debut is a bit part in an upcoming TV movie. Griffin Dunne, who directed this tedious mockumentary, plays the documentary filmmaker, mainly by keeping his back to the camera as he gets between two groups of actors—the documentary's subjects and its crew. “When the other kids were playing cowboys and Indians, I was playing indie filmmaker,” says Dunne—in character of course—in a voice-over that's neither funnier nor more insightful for being self-deprecating. Kirk wrote the screenplay with costar Nat DeWolf. 87 min.
