Director’s Cut Trailer. Adam Rifkin‘s Director’s Cut (2016) movie trailer stars Penn JilletteHarry Hamlin and Hayes MacArthurDirector’s Cut‘s plot synopsis: “Herbert Blount aspires to replace the real director of a movie and make it his own by capturing the lead actress and inflicting much horror upon her in his version.”

According to Slashfilm, “A crowdsourced movie about a crowdsourced movie gone awry, Director’s Cut centers on Herbert Blount (Jillette), an unhinged cineaste who decides to take over control of a film project he helped fund. He kidnaps the lead actress (Missi Pyle) and forces her to act out the scenes he’s written, while her co-stars (Harry Hamlin and Hayes MacArthur) wonder about her disappearance. The entire film takes the form of a director’s cut of Blout’s finished masterpiece. Like I said, it’s very meta.”

Here, via Slashfilm, is a more detailed synopsis of Director’s Cut: “DIRECTOR’S CUT written by Penn Jillette, starring Jillette, Missi Pyle, Harry Hamlin – Premiering in Park City as Slamdance Special Screening Opening Night Film. The horror/black comedy follows a deranged lunatic named Herbert Blount (Jillette), who donates a large sum of money to a crowdfunded horror movie which lands him on set, after which he aspires to replace the real director of a movie and make it his own by steeling the footage, capturing the lead actress (Pyle) and reshooting scenes the way he’d like them for his own version. The story is told via the director’s commentary over this new and improved version of the film.”

I grew up in Hamburg to a German father and Ecuadorian mother. Obsessive student of film, Hip-Hop, and stand-up comedy. I love the dark dreambox that is the cinema auditorium. I love mountains and the ocean, but am equally exhilarated by the jungle of the city. I hope to one day create something that hits someone in the brain with thunderous effect.
