Seen any good movies lately? One of America’s top research scientists hasn’t, so he heads to Hollywood to find out why. Join Ken and Jim (the 7’ tall bumbling narrator) on a hilarious road trip as they take an analytical look at the movie business in a futile attempt at finding order in a world of chaos. Is what screenwriter William Goldman once said, that “Nobody knows anything about what makes a movie work” really true? Is that why theater ticket sales are currently in their worst slump in twenty years and why so many sequels, remakes and unimaginative formulaic movies are being produced? Is the movie business just a crap shoot – or does a hidden science guide all blockbuster hits? Crap Shoot – The Documentary is not just a fascinating discourse on Hollywood’s creative development process, it is epic pathos veiled in brilliant satire. Taking you from the endless urban maze that is L.A. to the surreal experience of Las Vegas on Halloween night, Crap Shoot is easily the most entertaining documentary ever produced. And in the long, fertile history of cinema, it is the only documentary about movies that becomes a movie about documentaries! Crap Shoot should be mandatory viewing at all film schools, and for anyone who wants to laugh hard and often!
