User Reviews

Sometimes the title says it all. 1* out of 10*
12 October 2020 | by velvet_zooSee all my reviews

In this case, it is half of the title that says it all. To be exact, it is the second half of the title. Shallow parody about the life of an overrated film director who would not make ends meet today. His abusive nature would get him off any gig immediately. Unwatchable, almost like most of his original films today.
