The Disaster Artist

Actor-director James Franco transforms into actor-director Tommy Wiseau

The Disaster Artist is both a hilarious comedy of errors and a touching love letter to Hollywood. Add to that The Disaster Artist’s meta-humorous “film within a film”/“good actors playing bad actors” japery, and you’ve got the makings of a cult film about making a cult film.

The Little Hours

Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza and Kate Micucci are naughty nuns in oddball literary adaptation

The Little Hours is a send-up of the absurd idea of sin and that human beings can actually give up their sins of the flesh, but Jeff Baena’s attentions are focused on the fact that cursing, drunken, fornicating nuns are funny as hell.
