A movie about moviemaking runs the risk of being self-indulgent and too clever. That said, the self-reflexive genre includes some extraordinary works such as “The Player,” “The Day of the Locust,” and “Sunset Boulevard.” We can now add to that list —in the mobile movie subcategory—Christopher Stollery’s witty “No Budget.”
“No Budget” artfully creates the appearance of an improved movie. But it uses smart camera work and sophisticated editing to accomplish some astonishing visual effects. The film also demonstrates the importance of careful casting, even down to the smallest walk-on parts.
