Living In Oblivion

BBB.5

(out of 5)


This memorable comedy explores the many hilarious situations that a person endures when working in the world of independent film.  plays the exasperated director, (who also produced) is his cameraman, and (Mulroney’s real-life wife at the time) plays the actress starring in their latest underground opus. Its method of storytelling is just a series of different experiences that don’t come together as one film as much as an enjoyable exercise. All of its observations are poginant, however, and sometimes even quite touching. Keener, as usual, is excellent (she’s gone on to star in many of Tom DiCillo’s projects since), and  is funny as a snotty actor who is reportedly based on Brad Pitt when he worked on DiCillo’s Johnny Suede.
