Docs from Beyond: American Movie (1999)
Husets Biograf

Looking for proof that real life is more entertaining than fiction? You just found it. This superb documentary about an aspiring feature filmmaker (Mark Bortchart) who refuses to admit defeat is one of the funniest film you will ever see — probably because it’s also one of the most tragic.

19:30 = American Movie, 1999, dir. Chris Smith, USA, 107 min., English Language //On the northwest side of Milwaukee, Mark Borchardt dreams the American dream: for him, it’s making movies. Using relatives, local theater talent, slacker friends, his Mastercard, and $3,000 from his Uncle Bill, Mark strives over three years to finish “Coven,” a short horror film. His own personal demons (alcohol, gambling, a dysfunctional family) plague him, but he desperately wants to overcome self-doubt and avoid failure. In moments of reflection, Mark sees his story as quintessentially American, and its the nature and nuance of his dream that this film explores. Like Don Quixote, American Movie presents an often-ignored inefficient aspect of freedom — that people will be drawn toward professions to which they are not particularly well-suited, irrespective of repeated failure. A Brilliant Movie.
