I worked this Movie Set
This movie was filmed in Tucson AZ in different parts of the city. I was doing Security for the set and didn’t really know what all it was about but did see Richard Kind and Jeremy Renner and didn’t know who either were at the time but did recognize Richard Kind from TV but didn’t know his name but know he was a well known actor. This movie was filmed in 2007 and I had been trying to find it for years because I guarded the camera, lighting and trailers and kept homeless people from wandering into the set up areas during filming but didn’t know the name of the movie. Almost every part of town they filmed in was the ghetto to…lol No joke they left millions of dollars worth of camera and lighting equipment and trailers and the cars they used for the movie just sitting on the street or in parking lots with only one unarmed Security guy at a time watching the stuff. It was a miracle nothing got stolen. Now that I finally found it online I was able to watch it and remember the green car that was on the set and the different places we went where they set up for days at a time to film. Almost got in a fist fight with a homeless dude that wanted to eat with the crew working on the film when they were set up at the TCC downtown. Dude was refusing to leave…lol If I had known Jeremy Renner was going to become such a well known actor i would have asked for his autograph because I was everywhere the cast, extras and crews were working and guarded the trailers. One thing I learned in doing Security for a movie set is that the camera and lighting guys are the hardest working people in the movie industry, those guys had a hard job. Anyway, I honestly didn’t like the movie but was glad to finally see it because it was filmed in my hometown of Tucson AZ and I was one of the Security guys working the set with a company called Tactical Elete Security.
Well above average indie flick!
Just saw this film at the AFI Dallas Film Festival. I was very impressed with all elements of the film: acting, direction, editing (though the dialog transitions were sometimes a little shaky), cinematography, etc. Dallas Roberts (Matt) and Jeremy Renner (Sam), who had not worked together previously, establish an amazing on-screen chemistry as best friends struggling to run a novelty gift business. The dilapidated storefront they operate out of is the emblem of their entrepreneurial disconnect: high on energy and ideas, low on success. Ayelet Zurer, the smoldering Israeli beauty, plays Matt’s long-suffering wife Gina with nuance and flair.
I would recommend this film not only to indie fans who like a fair amount of high-speed comedy mixed in with their drama, but also to *anyone* who has ever tried to run their own business, and really put themselves out on a limb for an idea or a dream.
All great films (and this is surely one of them) have a key line or scene that summarizes the film. Without giving anything away, I will tell you that in this film, it is the closing scene atop a mountain with Matt and Gina.
Jeremy Renner was at the screening for a Q&A. He was funny, quirky, and candid, much like his character in the film. I can’t wait to see this guy in more vehicles, even the television series “The Unusuals” that he’s making with Amber Tamblyn.
Two thumbs way up!
