A message on the Fisher Stevens Archives Forum reveals the following information regarding 'Sam the Man'
Recently screened at the Hamptons International Film Festival in New York, reviewer Rey Wasserman reported the following:
|"Fisher Stevens stars as
Sam, a one-book-wonder novelist with a penchant for
women, many women. Sam has found happiness with fiance'
Cass (Anabella Sciorra), except that he is suffering from
writer's block and struggles, and fails, to be faithful.
On the one hand, Sam loves and wants to be with Cass, on
the other hand, there just are so many women who find him
and his small celebrity status irresistible, and, despite
himself, he finds them irresistible as well. Although
there is humor and certainly irony here, this is not a
Hollywood style bedroom romp. Sam is not a happy man, but
a flawed human being struggling to come to terms with
himself and his world.
This film was directed by Gary Winick (The Tick Code) who shot it on digital video in 14 days at $60,000 before the transfer to film.
