Coming to select theatres and to VOD tomorrow, Friday, December 14:
THE INSUFFERABLE GROO
DOC NYC, Sydney Underground, Calgary Underground
A behind-the-scenes look at the life and work of a low-budget auteur.
I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC’s program, saying:
Stephen Groo is a self-proclaimed auteur, narrowing in on his 200th film in 20 years. His oeuvre of outlandishly awful genre films has managed to attract admirers like NAPOLEON DYNAMITE’s Jared Hess and Jack Black, but the Utah-based director has never made a dime off of his work, leaving his wife to provide for their family of four small boys. As Groo attempts to make his latest opus, his narcissism threatens to prove his undoing in this entertaining look at low-budget guerrilla filmmaking.
