Bookie

Michael Yusko, a gambling addict with a drinking problem, crowdsources funds to make a movie about a gambling addict with a drinking problem, only to lose the money gambling. After a death threat from an ornery investor, he is forced to make something with the miniscule funds he has left. It's difficult to say what comes next. We follow Michael everywhere, changing modes from video-diarist to director to actor to something like a regular person. Are we watching a documentary about the making of the rump of his would-be film? Or is this that film? Is it both? Not even the characters (actors? subjects?) are sure. Frenetically edited and paced to the vicissitudes of Michael's temperamental and downright bizarre desires, we are pulled deeper and deeper into a meta (non)narrative best described as a delightfully brutal portrait of artistic frustration.

Another enjoyable Comedy movie that didn't get it's just credit in theaters. I like it very much.

The casting was done perfectly. I don't think I've ever watched a movie as visually stunning as this one.

The show is well-written, futuristic, and nearly flawless. Give this film a chance, you'll be beyond thankful you did.
