The Impossible Dream
Last night I finished watching Lost In La Mancha. A documentary about an ill fated attempt to film Don Quixote. Net Flix recommended it because I rented Man of La Mancha. I've seen behind the scenes documentaries before but this was a movie that failed. I felt really bad for the people struggling to make the film. Everything went wrong for them from a flash flood wiping out all their equipment to the star being hospitalized and that was just in the first week of filming. It was a really interesting look at how much work it is to make a movie. I have a new found respect for movies that flop.
