‘Being Michael Madsen’ on DVD September 7, 2010
Being Michael Madsen is a 2007 comedy film directed by Michael Mongillo and produced by Daniel A. Sherkow. The film takes a mockumentary approach in re-imagining actor Michael Madsen as a paparazzi-hounded movie star who hatches a revenge scheme against a tabloid journalist. The film co-stars Virginia Madsen, David Carradine, Harry Dean Stanton, Daryl Hannah, Lacey Chabert, Debbie Rochon, and Vicki Roberts.
Michael Madsen’s played a lot of unsavory characters on screen, but could he possibly be a murderer in real life? That’s the starting point for this deliciously “meta” mockumentary, in which a paparazzo (Jason Alan Smith) starts the vicious rumor. Madsen seeks his own brand of justice against the creep, inspired by the roles he’s played. Daryl Hannah, David Carradine, Harry Dean Stanton, and Madsen’s sister, Virginia, appear as themselves.
