Our Score
Hubris is the name of the game in this slightly unsatisfactory documentary following rock artist and first-time director Troy Duffy as he tries to get his movie, The Boondock Saints, off the page and onto the big screen. Duffy reveals himself as an arrogant, foul-mouthed, temperamental egotist, and there's certainly some Schadenfreude to be enjoyed as we watch him being screwed over by, among others, Miramax's Harvey Weinstein. However, halfway through Overnight, it's revealed that the makers are two former collaborators of Duffy, making their film anything but non-partisan. For all their sniggering, Duffy did eventually get his movie made - although the result was awful.

Summary

This documentary is a compelling and cautionary snapshot of Hollywood. It tells the story of struggling musician and barman Troy Duffy who sells a script to Harvey Weinstein at Miramax. But, along the way, he alienates friends and family plus the music and film industry with his arrogance and vanity.
