  • Chuck and Buck

    2000. USA. Directed by Miguel Arteta. Screenplay by Mike White. With White, Chris Weitz, Lupe Ontiveros. Written by and starring Freaks and Geeks creator Mike White, who would go on to write Orange County and School of Rock and create the TV series Enlightened, and directed by Miguel Arteta (Star Maps, The Good Girl), Chuck and Buck is a dark comedy that spins a queasy scenario of unrequited longing into a mordant yet oddly touching Hollywood fable. Twenty-something man-children have never been as deeply examined as in this complicated film. A production of early-aughts digital-video studio Blow-Up Pictures, Chuck and Buck’s DV aesthetic is a vital part of its in-your-face charm. Chuck and Buck was Filmmaker’s Spring 2000 cover. 96 min.
