  • Filmmaker Nick Reve has only one thing on his mind: completing his low-budget, independent film. That may sound simple, but every day is a challenge. Take this morning, for example, which has already gotten off to a terrible start. First, his star players, egotistical heart-throb Chad Palomino and insecure but gifted Nicole, aren't getting along. It seems they haven't recovered from their bad one-night stand. Nick's tough assistant director Wanda has just broken it off with her cameraman beau Wolf, so he's in a rotten mood, too. And the technicians can't get the equipment working. To top it all off, Nick's mentally impaired mother has escaped from her rest home and walked onto the set. It's one of those days where Murphy's Law reigns supreme... and anything can happen next.

    Rolling Stone

    Entertainment Weekly

    "An amusing, cunningly structured look at the perils of film production, LIVING IN OBLIVION is an inside joke with a generosity of heart and humor..."

    "...A clever and consistently funny inside-movies comedy....OBLIVION is an intricately constructed film-within-a-film..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "...DiCillo shows that what happens around a movie can often be funnier than the actual film..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    5 stars out of 5 -- "It remains perhaps the most honest, insightful film about filmmaking ever..."

    "Small, smart and still exquisitely funny, LIVING IN OBLIVION is the pick of the offbeat comedies DiCillo has been popping out since the mid-1990s..."
