"After We Collided" is a documentary produced by the film making duo of Ben Fountain and Patrick Clair. It's a pretty darned good documentary, which I will say right now. This one has some good clips and interviews, but not too much, in my opinion. This documentary would have benefited from an hour or so or even more than that.
I'm not really sure why the creators decided to make this After We Collared documentary. If they were going to do an in depth look at the aftermath of their divorce, or if they wanted to discuss how the movie was a success in Hollywood, I doubt that this would be necessary. But since this is an online film, it's not possible to see that in a standard television format.
I guess it does help that there's quite a bit of controversy about the whole event and the fallout of the entire story, because this movie has had a lot of bad press since it's been on the air. The whole thing began with the infamous "Innerscape" video. You may be familiar with it. It features Ben Fountain, who plays himself, and Patrick Clair, who play his character's brother, battling each other online. Then they come face-to-face in a real life scenario, and Ben gets hurt. It was apparently the most serious incident between the two men.
This After We Collared documentary features some other scenes that were taken from the viral video. Apparently Ben was actually injured, but he made it look that way. When the fight did occur in real life, however, Ben did not look like he was in any real pain. In fact, I think the part where he was shot was staged. It looked very fake, and I don't think that Ben wants anyone to know that he was injured. I would suspect that Ben made the whole thing up just for the benefit of making money from the movie.
I'm not sure what Sean Fountain thought when he saw the clip of Patrick and Ben fighting. In all honesty, I think Patrick might have enjoyed the part that Ben played and thought that Sean was being rather unprofessional for not giving him the respect that he deserved. It almost seemed like Sean was using Ben's injuries to get back at Patrick. and Sean seemed like a little punk who didn't understand that he was playing into Sean's hands. Even when Sean and Patrick's mother showed up in real life to talk about their issues, it ended up being Sean who I thought of as "Sean's mom."
In short, I think the main problem with the After We Collared movie isn't its quality, but more than anything else, it seems like Sean and Patrick are trying to cash in. After We Collared is an online film, and they want to make money from it. They want people to think that they're somehow giving insight into the actual situation.
