Overnight | Chicago Reader


As compelling as a car wreck, this 2003 feature by Mark Brian Smith chronicles the precipitous rise and fall of aspiring rock star and indie filmmaker Troy Duffy, a giant in his own mind who ostensibly hit the jackpot in 1997 when Miramax bought his script for a post-Tarantino shoot-'em-up called The Boondock Saints and Maverick Records signed his band, the Brood. Smith and producer Tony Montana were Duffy's partners in a nascent film-and-music company that never progressed much farther than a lot of drinking and big talk; after falling out with Duffy the two filmmakers were left with a ton of footage documenting his raging ego and bitter comeuppance as the movie and record deals fell apart. 80 min.
