Despite The Gods

This looks good for a documentary. I'll keep my eyes out for it.

Despite the Gods is a feature documentary about Hollywood's prodigal daughter. Jennifer Lynch is well known for making bold, if not ill-fated, choices in her filmmaking career. But nothing could prepare her for the unmapped territory of Bollywood-Hollywood movie making, where chaos is the process and filmmaking doubles as a crash course in acceptance and self-realization.

Iíve got to agree with the original poster about Hisss. I posted the trailer here a while back. Got to see it and beyond that it was just OK.

Hisss (

I absolutely hated Jennifer Carpenter's Hisss, which quietly snuck into Red Box's across the Nation last October. It's hard to pinpoint what went wrong, but there were some warning signs last January when it was reported that the flick, starring Mallika Sherawat as snake woman who can take on various forms, was taken away from Carpenter in the editing stage.

The film sucks, and we know this, but that's beyond the point. Apparently a film crew caught all of the behind-the-scenes drama on camera!

Penny Vozniak directs Despite the Gods, a documentary on Hiss set to premiere at the Canadian film festival Hot Docs this coming April.

The below trailer is 110% better than Hisss...
