The megalomaniacal rise and fall of filmmaker Troy Duffy is chronicled by one-time friends and colleagues in director Mark Smith's documentary. The film takes its title from the "overnight success" that befell Duffy in 1996, when the then-bartender was signed by Miramax president Harvey Weinstein to direct his killers-on-a-mission-from-God script The Boondock Saints. Smith's cameras follow Duffy from pre-production -- when he battled with executives over casting and financing decisions -- on through to the lackluster release of the film. What's more, Duffy expected his relative cinematic success to translate over to his burgeoning rock band as well -- and the tension created by the presupposed deal caused him to alienate just about everyone involved with both projects.

Now there are alot of stories on the promise of fame, the underachieving but strong-willed and ingenious director who manages to get everyone on their side that the audience falls in love with and roots for... This isn't that story. Essentially the behind the scenes look at the movie Boondock Saints, director Troy Duffy embodies the overconfident archetype that turns on family and friends alike once he has some success. An engaging cautionary tale, and with a second Boondock Saints in post-production there should be some new interest in this dvd.
