There was something sadly compelling about Overnight, it's the story of Troy Duffy, the writer / director of The Boondock Saints, Duffy achieved what most people only dream of, he sold his first film script, got to ( eventually ) direct the movie based on that script and also managed to get a record deal for his band and then through sheer ego managed to throw it all away.

I must say that regardless of Duffy's personal failings I did enjoy The Boondock Saints but I haven't as yet seen it's sequel, at it's heart I guess this documentary is a cautionary tale about how wrong things can go when you achieve your dreams.

Be careful what you wish for............
