This Parody Fits Every Indie Movie Cliche Into Under 3 Minutes

Not ANOTHER Sundance Movie!

Remember that Cracked parody about Oscar-nominated movies? Just in time for the Sundance Film Festival, indie movies now have a parody all their own. “Not Another Sundance Movie” was created by the comedy group Tastes Funny, and it’s packed with every indie cliche you can imagine. Vintage pickup trucks. People crying in the front seat of a car. Little children dancing. Depressing landscapes. It’s like attending Sundance without leaving the comfort of your own bed.

"On The Road" (NSFW)
K-Stew is topless, giving a double handjob in "On The Road." Watch »

Kate Bosworth showed up at Sundance to promote her starring role in the new film adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s autobiographical novel Big Sur, directed by her fiancé Michael Polish. They certainly chose an odd time to release a Kerouac movie, what with that other one coming out and all. I’m curious to see if Polish’s version features any topless double handjobs. Anyway, Kate wore this leathery retro go-go getup to the premiere. The lady looks good in pretty much everything, and while this outfit is definitely very adventurous, I think it’s slightly too literal to be a hit. It could’ve used some contemporary updates to bring it back down to earth circa 2013. What say you?

What do you think of Kate's retro look?

  • Women directors fare far better in indie films than they do in the mainstream Hollywood machine, according to a new study out of this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Women are still woefully underrepresented in all filmmaking roles in Sundance films, however. [Guardian UK]

  • Indian caste councils have asked for “greater understanding” for families for committing domestic violence against their sisters and daughters, AKA so-called “honor killings.” Women’s rights advocates in India suspect 10,000 people are murdered by “honor killings” each year, usually women killed by family members.

Dakota Fanning is looking super, super cute in this crop top and shimmery embroidered miniskirt combo straight outta the Louis Vuitton pre-fall 2013 collection — this is one of my favorite looks of hers in a while. But I just want to call some attention to the fact that Dakota went sleeveless, belly-baring, and fancy-free at Sundance, where temperatures are maxing out at 35 degrees and most of the attendees have been photographed in Uggs and earmuffs. Props! I say this from New York City, which weather reports have currently classified as “frigid.”

Let’s Talk About All The Things Wrong With This Photo Of Michael Cera And Ben Flajnik

Bachelor Liveblog!
Tune is as Amelia gets drunk and offers pithy commentary. Read More »

As Amelia said when she looked at this picture of actor Michael Cera and “Bachelor” Ben Flajnik at a Sundance Film Festival party, “There are a lot of things about this that make me uncomfie.”  I couldn’t agree more. I had a visceral feeling of discomfort the moment I saw it. I have so many questions. First: Why was Ben invited to Sundance? Please don’t tell me he’s trying to be an actor now. Continuing on: What’s up with Michael’s mustache? His hat? Why is he holding Ben in such a lascivious fashion? Did they know each other before this moment? Or is Michael just trying to be ironic? Why is Ben so boring? OK. Your turn! [Michael Cera looks like my ex-boyfriend in that photo. Oof. -- Editor] [Pop Sugar]

Oprah’s Network To Air Documentary “Becoming Chaz” About Cher’s Transgender Son


You might expect movies to go straight from the uber-crunchy Sundance Film Festival to, say, the uber-crunchy Independent Film Channel (IFC). But one Sundance documentary of serious cultural import will go a more mainstream route: Oprah’s new network, OWN, will air the television premiere of “Becoming Chaz,” about Chaz Bono‘s gender reassignment surgery. Chaz, the transgender son of Cher and Sonny Bono, was born “Chastity.” But he realized his true self was male and has gone through the long process to make the physical and emotional transformation. (Luckily he has the support of his femme girlfriend of four years, Jennifer Elia.) “Becoming Chaz” debuts at Sundance on January 23 and should air on OWN in May. I’m super-happy that OWN is using its mainstream appeal to give transgendered men and women visibility (than, say, the catchphrase “hot tranny mess”). I’m hoping Cher speaks up in the documentary, too, even if it’s just to tell other parents of transgender kids that she, too, sometimes forgets not to call her son “her”!

A Beastie Boys Biopic Is In The Works

Picture this: Seth Rogen, Elijah Wood, and Danny McBride as Mike D, Ad-Rock, and MCA. Yup, Beastie Boy Adam Yauch is directing a short biopic about the making of the song “(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party!).” “Fight For Your Right Revisited” will premiere at the Sundance Short Film Festival. Oh-so excited to see anything having to do with the Beastie Boys. I believe this gives us all license to ill. [Sterogum] Keep reading »

James Franco’s New Performance Art Dissects “Three’s Company”

I was just about to forgive James Franco for signing on to appear in 20 episodes of “General Hospital” and calling it “performance art,” when I caught wind of his latest project. In his downtime from being a beat poet (“Howl”) and cutting off his arm (“127 Hours”), he has been hard at work on an adaptation of the late-’70s television show “Three’s Company.” Keep reading »

The Best Film No One Knows About Yet


I spent my Christmas vacation in Dublin. After too much Guinness and too many hurricane-like rainstorms, my friends and I decided to duck into the Irish Film Institute to get warm and dry. It turned out to be a fantastic decision. Right as we slogged in, the film “Nowhere Boy” was about to begin. We grabbed some hot chocolate (they actually served real hot chocolate at the theater!) and took our seats. I knew nothing whatsoever about the film—I had never even heard about it before that moment. As it turned out, “Nowhere Boy”—which has not been released yet in the States—is the first film by avant-garde artist Sam Taylor-Wood. It’s a historical account of John Lennon’s late teenage years in Merseyside. Sure, I consider myself a Beatles fan. But about two seconds into the film, I became a huge fan of someone else—Aaron Johnson, the 19-year-old actor who plays John Lennon in the film. I’m not usually the type to get pervy crushes on young boys, but his hotness was off the Richter. I just couldn’t help myself. I think I actually drooled. Where the hell has he been hiding out?
