Trailer of the Week: Baghead

From the creators of The Puffy Chair—that slacker dramedy Portlanders loved so well— comes more post-collegiate angst in the mumblecore mold, though this time there's a rather charming twist to the proceedings.

I don't know if I could tolerate over an hour of this, but the trailer itself is a work of art, with its tonal gearshift played totally deadpan. As far as I've observed, the reveal of the matter-of-fact title—"BAGHEAD"—never fails to put theater audiences in stitches. Or me.
Baghead is rated R and should open in Portland sometime soon.
