For those of you who enjoy reading a review before watching a movie, please note that this movie is quite long and contains many self-congratulatory reviews. If you want to see a movie that has some substance and the viewer doesn't have to be either sucked in or have their brains smashed into a pulp by a poorly edited montage of commercials, this movie is the perfect film for you. It is filled with people talking about their childhood and dreams, and discussing the virtues of their families, all while they are in the midst of making a movie about their lives. It is almost impossible to talk about this movie without including something about your own childhood, so be prepared for that. The film is split into two parts, and the first half is about one man's journey to making a movie. The second half is about the actors, and how they spent the two years after the film was completed. The actors are shown in scenes where they talk about their childhood and their hopes for the future, and how they have been impacted by their lives. It is a very moving documentary, and the reason I enjoyed it so much is because I am an actor myself. As a matter of fact, I am one of the most under-appreciated people in the world. In all honesty, I am probably the biggest under-appreciated actor in the world, and the only reason I'm going to watch this movie is because I love Kevin Smith. It is a testament to him that I have such a high rating on IMDb for this movie. I'm glad that people like me have an opportunity to see this movie, and that people like me can see it. I've always been someone who looks at my life and sees everything that I could possibly want. It is a very powerful movie, and I am very thankful for having the opportunity to see it.
