An inventive, hilarious look behind the scenes of the movie-making business, the indie classic Living in Oblivion makes its Blu-ray debut with Shout! Factory’s release of Living in Oblivion: The 20th Anniversary Edition on November 17th, 2015. Since its release in 1995, this smart, critically acclaimed satire from award-winning writer/director Tom DiCillo (Johnny Suede) has become a cult favorite for its affectionately acerbic portrait of the indie film world. Boasting a bevy of bonus features, Living in Oblivion: The 20th Anniversary Edition offers fans an in-depth look at the history of the film, including the brand new featurette In Our Own Oblivion: The Miracle of Making a Film with new interviews with writer/director Tom DiCillo, producer Marcus Viscidi and cast members Steve Buscemi, James Le Gros, Danielle Von Zerneck, and Peter Dinklage; an audio commentary with writer/director Tom DiCillo, a Q&A with Tom DiCillo and Steve Buscemi, and a deleted scene.
In Living in Oblivion, the leading man has just had a disastrous one-night stand with the leading lady; the cinematographer is breaking up with the assistant director; the director’s mother has wandered onto the set; and the little person hired for the dream sequence has a big attitude. Winner of Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award at the 1995 Sundance Film Festival and featuring powerhouse performances from an all-star ensemble cast including Steve Buscemi (Reservoir Dogs), Catherine Keener (Being John Malkovich), Dermot Mulroney (August: Osage County), James Le Gros (Justified) and Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones), Living in Oblivion is a must-see for anyone with a love of indie film.
