Who Do You Trust?

"Can a director be too independent for independent film? In an arena increasingly seen as an annex of the major studios and where one of Hollywood’s contributions has been the acceptance of compromise, the career of the writer and director Tom DiCillo would suggest it’s true."

From John Anderson's Sunday NY Times handjob.

"Delirious represents a return from direct-to-DVD purgatory for Tom DiCillo, still probably best remembered--when he is--for his calling card 1995 film, Living in Oblivion, a self-reflexive look behind-the-scenes of an independent film shoot that piggybacked on the mid-'90s vogue for all things "indie" into a modest critical success. More than once since I've seen him referred to as a cult filmmaker, though I don't claim to know where this cult congregates, or why, exactly."

From Nick Pinkerton's review of DiCillo's latest, Delirious.
