AMERICAN MOVIE (1999)
★★★★ A brilliantly bewildering doco, tailor-made for anyone who has ever sat in a cinema thinking, ‘‘I could do better than that’’. American Movie details what can happen when somebody acts upon that impulse for better or worse. No, wait a minute — just make that worse. The wannabe filmmaker in question is 30-year-old cemetery cleaner Mike Borchardt, whose specialty is ham-fisted horror. L.P.
