Movie Reviews

(3 out of 5 stars)

"It's always a pleasure to watch John Savage and this movie is no exception. He plays a Hollywood director who's desperate to rekindle his career. So desperate that he would do almost anything, including destroying the only thing he has left: his home. Unfortunately for him, more and more people get wind of his deed and now everybody wants a piece of the action. Unfortunately the DVD does not have a lot of extras. Only two: a picture gallery and the electronic press kit. Although John Savage has not been interviewed for the press kit, it's well worth watching for the comments of the other actors and the director. The picture quality of the DVD was not very good, but I might just have gotten a flawed copy.Burning Down the House is a low budget independent movie and will not be to everybody's taste, but if you like black off-the-wall comedies go for it. ;-)"
Enjoyable black comedy

"Anything with the great John Savage catches my eye. Here he plays an out of work film director who ends up desperately burning down his home to finance his next project. Film has some very funny moments wrapped around the desperation of the characters. Arye Gross is also particularly funny (and a cameo by Mick Fleetwood). I would describe the film as a low budget version of "The Player". Not perfect but worth a look."
