I was almost tempted to walk out of the theatre on many occasion as the "threatrics of Doug & Gang" can be a tad overbearing...A redefinition of artistry is in order after witnessing TROMA pictures' marketing efforts...
But then one gradually understand the theme of this thrashy docu, and must admit its pretty lofty, "that of the struggles indie film makers have to go through to make themselves heard & seen, in our oppressing times of monopolistic movie cartels."
The levels of desperation those sorry bunch of people descend to, is afterwhile(after the desensitisation to their horrid antics),....sad.
In summary, Loved that dog, hated Doug's guts, and sympathies to everyone working for Carlton Hotel. Most importantly, Scott should quit his thankless job;). Then again, the docu is so manipulative, don't be surprised if everything from start go is "staged"...
An unforgettable experience(not necessary a good one).....
