American Movie

An interesting little film about a guy in rural America trying to make his own film.  I think the most interesting part of the film was trying to figure out the main character.  He comes across as a sort of well-meaning hustler – I say this because I think in his heart he thinks that everyone shares his vision.  Later in the film we see – like so many other hucksters – he thinks that he is a success and that good and decent people around him (who have achieved way more than he has) are beneath him.
