Again I hop the red line to Davis Square to catch Filmic Achievement at the Somerville Theater. Imagine if Christopher Guest was to do a mockumentary about a film school, and that's what you have. The film follows a handful of students attending UNY, an intensive NYC film program. Imagine what the New York Film Academy must be like.

The movie starts with a filmmaker explaining what the magic hour is. He was conceived and born during the magic hour, and he feels the magic hour is a part of him, his touchstone, something he must share with the world.

The Dean describes the kids as risk takers with a big gaping hole. He says that UNY will help them fill the hole. All the performances are done in a serious tone, think Will Farrell but not as obvious.
