American Movie (1999)



Scenes like this brought back memories of film school.


This documentary follows amateur filmmaker Mark Borchardt as he works on a short horror film titled Coven.

When this movie came out, some critics accused the director of holding Borchardt up for ridicule, but I completely disagree. He's the kind of guy some would dismiss as a "loser", but the film never judges him. He was obviously chosen because he's an interesting yet relatable character. The excerpts from his work show he has some talent. I cheered his minor victories, and cringed at the lack of faith displayed by his family.
