Darby Bonarsky is an actress living in Koreatown, Los Angeles. A local filmmaker wanted to tell her story. This show-biz satire directed by Jacqueline Kramer and Dasha Nekrasova takes aim at narcissist celebrity culture and its unbalanced participants. “They were looking at me,” Darby points out, as she struts down the street soaking up stranger’s stares, and the attention from being filmed by a documentary crew. “It’s for my fans,” she explains to her on-and-off boyfriend, Beau, as she barges into his apartment complex trying to reconnect despite his warnings to stay away. In addition to her volatile love life, she’s also chronically unhappy about her “dogshit career,” and her young manager (“he’s like 19 years old”) trying to get her off booze and onto his supplement regime. Dominated by a gloriously batty performance by Nekrasova, showing perverse delight in playing into this unhinged, men-dependent narrative, “The Darby Bonarsky Story” is inspired lampooning and eminently quotable — “I’m not an actress because I’m a happy person. I’m an actress because I have serious emotional problems stemming from my childhood.” Nekrasova also memorably stars in “Nothing Bad Will Happen”, which we featured in May, and co-wrote and stars in the upcoming feature, “Wobble Palace”, which premiered this year at SXSW and will be released in the Fall.
