WAITING FOR GUFFMAN (1996)

dir. Christopher Guest. My favorite ‘Mockumentary’ style film. The audition scenes still have me tearing up with laughter. An incredible twelve years after writing on THIS IS SPINAL TAP (1984), Christoper Guest returns to the genre as director and co-writer, and it’s a masterpiece. Fun cameo from David Cross as the UFO expert. The movie that made me fall in love with Parker Posey. Cool to see that the Spinal Tap band collaborated to write the songs for the musical within this film. A true ensemble performance, every character has their own moment. A real comedy classic.
