Lollilove [Troma - $19.98]

Welcome to one of the best movies of the year. Yes, Troma’s LolliLove is just that good. Though it should have been a problematic project from the start—the mockumentary and/or ad-libbed comedy are two of the trickiest cinematic styles to get right, let alone perfect—what co-writer/director Jenna Fischer and her Hollywood screenwriter husband James Gunn have managed here is nothing short of pure comedic bliss. Brave, brazen, and filled with the kind of well-observed satire that’s practically impossible to capture on film, this ode to questionable intentions and even more perplexing protocols takes Tinseltown by the throat and really rings its silly, self-important neck. All we can do is laugh at the truth and wonder how far this filmmaker will push the concept. [Amazon]
