BUMS

Do you absolutely love Kevin Smith's Clerks & also ultra low budget filmmaking & also perhaps you are from Canada or have some roots/friends there? Then BUMS by the Butler brothers might be the low budget indie film for you. It is a comedy about a few slacker friends in Toronto and their attempts to find sex and or romance. There isn't much of a plot, but there is some very well written dialogue in the film. On the downside, the well crafted dialogue is often not delivered in a naturalistic manner - specially in the first half of the film, but perhaps that was intentional. The film did not become very interesting for me until the last 15 minutes or so, when two of the characters discover if they are going to be getting together or not. I did a quick search on the web and found a few reviews by people who enjoyed the movie a lot more than I did. So, in the spirit of low budget indie filmmaker solidarity, I will point you in the direction of those reviews & will point you to the website where you can buy a DVD of the movie, if it sounds interesting enough to check out. The Butler brothers definitely show promise, it will be interesting to see how they use their filmmaking potential on future projects.

The Meyerowitz Stories is very good

Note - I saw the movie before the Dustin Hoffman sex assault allegations story broke.  Not sure what kind of an experience I would have had watching the movie had I knew about the allegations.
