'Living in Oblivion'

July 26, 1998|Kenneth Turan

Writer-director Tom DiCillo has turned his own experiences into a clever and consistently funny 1995 inside-movies comedy. "Oblivion" has a quirky three-part structure in which film, reality and fantasy double back on one another. Each section involves a single scene that put-upon director Nick Reve (Steve Buscemi, right, with James Le Gros), the kind of intense young cineaste who has a poster for Fritz Lang's "M" on his bedroom wall, is trying desperately to commit to film (Bravo Sunday at Midnight; Saturday at 8 p.m.; IFC Tuesday at 5 p.m. and 10 p.m.).
