See the Trailer for Stephen Tobolowsky Doc 'The Primary Instinct'
"That thing that makes a story a story…" FilmBuff has debuted the first teaser trailer for David Chen's documentary The Primary Instinct, about actor/entertainer Stephen Tobolowsky. The documentary follows Tobolowsky across the country while he speaks at events and performs "The Tobolowsky Files", the podcast hosted by Chen and Tobolowsky. It's essentially a concert film made up mostly of footage from his events with an extra edge looking at storytelling, asking the question of "why do we tell stories in the first place?" This actually looks really good! I'm already fascinated by what Tobolowsky talks about in this tease.
Here's the first official trailer for David Chen's doc The Primary Instinct, originally from Vanity Fair:
Actor Stephen Tobolowsky has acted in over 200 TV shows and films over the past 40 years, possessing one of the most dazzlingly diverse filmographies on the planet. But even more compelling than the stories he's been apart of onscreen are those he tells offscreen. In 'The Primary Instinct,' Stephen plays himself and uses the art of storytelling to take the audience through a riveting and moving journey about life, love, and Hollywood. Along the way, he just may answer one of the questions that's dogged humanity since the beginning of time: Why do we tell stories in the first place? The Primary Instinct is directed by David Chen, of the /Filmcast making his directing debut - follow him @davechensky. The doc premiered at IFFBoston and the Seattle Film Fest. FilmBuff will debut The Primary Instinct on VOD September 22nd.

I always love when a smart guy tells us obvious things in new ways. I know that sounds sarcastic, but I mean it with no sarcasm. I enjoy the new perspective.

I also like the fact that some actors hide in themselves much more than their, sometimes, shabby characters they impersonate ...
