Storyline

In Ventura, CA, Giuseppe Andrews makes movies in his trailer park where he grew up. A former child actor in some big movies (Independence Day, Unstrung Heroes, Never Been Kissed), Giuseppe is inspired more by the crazy independent filmmakers of history: Bunuel, Cassavetes and Fassbinder. Obsessed with the edges of society, dirty language spoken as poems and occasional nudity, Giuseppe's films may resemble the underground worlds of Harmony Korine, John Waters and Tod Browning. With a handwritten script, a video camera, an acting ensemble of neighbors and homeless friends - and almost no money, Giuseppe has now made 30 feature films. In Giuseppe's new film "Garbanzo Gas", Vietnam Ron, one of many homeless men in Ventura that Giuseppe has grown up with, plays a vegan cow on vacation from the slaughterhouse. The doc GIUSEPPE MAKES A MOVIE follows the making of "Garbanzo Gas." From Giuseppe's headquarters - his own mobile home - we follow as he sets out to make a feature film in just two ...

Fantastic Beyond Belief
8 June 2015 | by MrVonAwesomeSee all my reviews

Giuseppe Makes A Movie is a poetic look inside the mind of an absolute genius in front of and behind the camera. To say Giuseppe Andrews is a master of the $1,000 dollar movie shot in two days would be a disservice to Mr. Andrews and the film community as a whole. An artist that doesn't subscribe to the concept of "No," Andrews is a shining beacon of hope in a vast crowd of self-entitled "would-be-filmmakers" bogging down the trenches of true independent spirit. Director Adam Rifkin managed an impossible feat by capturing Giuseppe's insane process yet managing to find the humanity amid the madness. This is an utterly captivating and heartfelt documentary. Giuseppe Makes A Movie is simply 82 minutes of lightning in a bottle. A must watch for any true cinephile.
