Roman Coppola's CQ from 2001 is one of those films that I don't think enough people have seen. Utter dreck like The Break-Up gets a huge theatrical release while this smart and original film played a few cities before heading to DVD. Jeremy Davies plays Paul, an American film editor living in Paris in the late 1960s. He gets his big chance to direct when he's asked to finish a film called Codename: Dragonfly, a film much in the vein of Mario Bava's Danger: Diabolik (right down to the mid-title colon). Paul struggles to find himself both as an artist and a person. Description does not do it justice. The film's official website is still active. Check out the trailer:
