Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
Paris, 1969. The filming of a sci-fi movie set in the distant year 2000 is in trouble. The director's obsession with the actress who plays the sexy secret agent Dragonfly has clouded his judgment and the film has no ending. A young American, in Paris to document his life on film with total honesty, is brought in to finish the movie with a bang. This proves to be difficult when the line between his fantasy life and reality becomes blurred, and he finds himself seduced by the charms of Dragonfly.

More Movie Taglines:
- Every picture tells a story
- What is Real? What is Art? What is...the End?
- Paul: I just want to capture what's real and honest. Marlene: And what if it's boring?
Enzo: Now... there are two kinds of movies: those with an ending, and those that don't have an ending. This movie needs an ending.
[Last line.] Paul: So this is the end... or is it the start? Of what?
Paul: You have, um... an eyelash right here. If you blow on it you can make a wish. Valentine: I wish cats could talk.
Fantasy Critic: Do you think you are clever?
- "CQ" is the Morse code phrase for "seek you" (a call for contact).
After being fired, Andrezej puts his fist through the screening room door. This is a reference to Francis Ford Coppola (father of director Roman Coppola) and his short temper. In fact, when the editors get a framed section of the destroyed wall, it is actually a portion of a wall the elder Coppola wrecked in his early directing days.
The trailer for the film is stylistically identical for the trailer that Paul designs for the film within the film, which, in turn, is stylistically identical to the trailer for the Stanley Kubrick film, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964).
Jason Schwartzman choreographed the vampire dance sequence.
The design for the inner workings of the Dragonfly robot at the end of the film are based on Paul's wristwatch, which we see at the beginning of the film.
