Hammer to Nail
"Films about artists rarely capture their artistic inspiration.
Creation takes too damn long, and movies are too impatient. A film
like Alex Karpovsky's 'Trust Us, This Is All Made Up', then, offers
something rare. Karpovsky presents, in blessed real time, a single
performance by T.J. Jagodowski and David Pasquesi, improvisational
actors whose on-the-fly plays defy easy categorization. They're
funny as hell but more nuanced than jokey. The laughs come from
characters quickly sketched, but richly drawn, and from the performers'
attention to the everyday absurdities of American English. What
they come up with here allows us to see a creative idea captured
from first spark to final flowering."
