With Troy Duffy, Billy Connolly, Willem Dafoe, Sean Patrick Flanery, Harvey Weinstein

Directed by Tony Montana & Mark Brian Smith

In the wake of Quentin Tarantino's shaking up of Hollywood in the '90s with Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction, the modern movie-making process and genre-blending hit a new high, and with it came the sometimes blatant, sometimes hushed search for the “next Tarantino”. One of these new generation rebel movie makers from that decade was Troy Duffy. A bartender with an unknown band, Duffy's screenplay for the violent Boondock Saints made its way to Hollywood muscle, the Weinsteins of Miramax. The deal was unheard of – Duffy would make his directorial debut with his first script to the tune of a $15 million budget, his band would do the soundtrack, and the Weinsteins offered to actually buy him the bar he worked at. But, as so easily happens, the project got postponed and put in turnaround, the bar deal falling away and the project seeming to be dead in the water.
Along the line friends of Duffy was shooting a documentary on his journey, and the footage slowly unpacks his already big ego to becoming a fully blown power mad asshole, screwing everyone, including himself. It is a painful and fascinating watch with some jaw-dropping moments. While essential for movie makers to watch, Overnight is not reserved for people in, or interested in the movie industry, but anyone interested in how the human animal functions when taken from one environment and placed into another artificially superior one.
As an extra feature, you get the entire Boondock Saints movie!
