They Shoot Movies Don't They?

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I thought it was great and it's fun to show to other people... I also agree with these reviewers I found...

Reviewed by Glenn Erickson
They Shoot Movies, Don't They? becomes kind of a reality cinema Citizen Kane, ...becomes sort of a Death of a Salesman. The ending is brutally honest

Gary W. Tooze
It's a riveting film to be sure - I was reminded of Chris Smith's American Movie (1999), but certainly much darker. We certainly recommend seeing it...

Justin Cleveland
Amalgamates "American Movie" and "Waiting for Guffman." ...This is like both of those... and something completely original... it is a fascinating, gripping portrait, It is definitely worth a viewing.

S. James Wegg
...there's much to savour in Gallagher's work. The near freeze-frame reaction from Adele after blurting out "Maybe you know something I don't," is worth the price of admission alone.

Reviewed by Dennis Schwartz
It leads to a shocking twist ending, as Tom shows how deeply he's been affected by this setback and how far he's willing to go to settle things. His extreme reaction to the crisis is what makes the film controversial.

Reviewed by Michael E, Carver
They Shoot Movies has earned a place in the canon of Independent films...

Reviewed by BRIAN LOWRY truly blurs the lines between reality and fiction... perhaps more telling than Project Greenlight."
I loved it.

"I loved this movie! Never before have I felt compelled to write a letter like this, but I've gotta tell you these guys are frickin' geniuses! I was so taken in by the whole thing, I couldn't get to sleep until I did further research about the project/Tom. The back story was really digging at me and damn if they didn't cover all the bases! I went to the website, and even to IMDB, it took me awhile to find the truth, but they got me! They definitely have put together a masterpiece and I truly have nothing but the utmost respect for what they've accomplished here. Although I spent most of the morning praying for the poor boys' soul, I can honestly say I will recommend this movie to EVERYONE, (which I have all day), and I'll let them figure it out. This movie has instilled in me, a new desire to complete my own unfinished projects and although I truly believe that I'll never be able to reach the artistic heights that these film makers have, it will be something that I will strive for. This movie is the "Goal Post"! Thank you!!!!!"
