Hilarious and a must see documentary for those that are interested in Indy filmmaking and the filmmaking process
At times it’s hard to believe this is a true documentary and not a mockumentary. Full of laughs and brilliant editing
Meet Mark and his clan. He just wants to make a movie. Thanks, Chris Smith, for showing this to us.
Easily the best documentary on film-making. Not glitz or glamour here just all passion to create.
Fantastic look at the struggles of an aspiring film director, while being much more entertaining than your average documentary.
Most of the time it feels fake, but these people and the documentary are far to raw, weird, and awkward to be fake.Hilarious and kind of sad
A very sad story actually. This movie helped give Mark a career in a field he otherwise never would have been in. Hilarious & charming.
Huh, so it's pronounced COE-ven. Good to know.
Underrated. One of my favorite documentary movies. Unlike any try hard comedy movies out there, this is actually funny too.
Hilarious and quotable. I have to be in the right mood, but it's a classic "documentary"

Austin, Texas, is an Eden for the young and unambitious, from the enthusiastically eccentric to the dangerously apathetic. Here, the nobly lazy can eschew responsibility in favor of nursing their esoteric obsessions.
