American independent filmmaker Hal Hartley made Amateur in 1994, and it still remains one of his best known films. This footage is from the set of the movie, and it features interviews with several of the cast members, including Isabelle Huppert, as well as the young director himself. The most revealing portion of the document comes at the very beginning, with Hartley revealing his insecurities about becoming too self-indulgent with his films. He explains that comedy is a way to connect with his audience but also lays out his fear of trying to augment such scenes with too many difficult references, thereby losing their effect. Picking one moment from the video does it a disservice, though, as much of it is very enlightening and full of shining insight—especially for those interested in Hartley and his work.
