They say, "make the movie you want to see," and for me, that movie is Mr Misfortune. I love dark comedy, film noir, and thrillers, in general, and always marveled at how contained, yet effective, they could be. Inspired by filmmakers that revived independent cinema in the 90s, I was struck by the common thread in all of their stories: they dared to make a movie without permission, and they created their own opportunities. More than that, they employed creativity in lieu of financial resources. Mr Misfortune is the result of sheer will, a passion for movies, and hyper-organization. This film is truly independent in every sense, and I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed making it.
