Man Under Table (2021)

Movies about making movies are sometimes the best movies of all. This movie gets into the mindset of writing movies — specifically, the brains of Guy (Noel David Taylor, who also wrote and directed the film). who tells everyone that he’s writing a movie.

When he meets  Jill Custard and Ben he gets to work on several projects that he has no ownership of, which pushes him to work with Gerald to create what just could be the worst movie –or at least the stupidest — ever made.

You think wearing a face covering has been bad the last year? The Los Angeles of this movie requires a gas mask just to deal with the green air.

“This isn’t a movie, it’s just random scenes about some guy,” says someone at some point, but that could be this whole movie. You can take it as a metatextual commentary on the nature of making movies, if you want to go deep, or you just might not like it at all.

I don’t know how you make a movie about making a movie that gets weird after Adaptation, but hey, these guys were brave enough to try. And that has to mean something.
