Movie Summary

Director:
Tom DiCillo
Released:
1995
Rating:
R
Living in Oblivion is Tom DiCillo's critically acclaimed self-referential independent film about the troubles of making an independent film, and is now available on view Crackle.com. This 1995 Sundance winner has a celebrity cast featuring Steve Buscemi, Catherine Keener, and Dermot Mulroney. It is split in three parts, each a dream (or sort of prophecy) of disaster on set, dreamed by members of the cast and set. It's creative style and script allows for the characters' flaws, hopes, and relationships between each other to come out through their dreams, while at the same time portraying the movie within a movie. The main focus is on Nick (Buscemi), the director of the low budget film in production, whose dream of seeing his artistic vision come to life is slipping away with every blundering mishap on set. Though the increasingly stressful events that occur, both in reality and in his dreams, Nick must learn to go with the flow and roll with the punches.moreless
