Holy Crap, The “Bellflower” Trailer Is Amazing

This makes me so happy. “Bellflower” is one of the best independent films I’ve seen so far in 2011, but it’s not an easy film to sell in a sentence or two. This, of course, is a big part of its appeal. It’s something wholly new: a romance, a comedy, a horror film, a gearhead movie all wrapped up into one gorgeous package. It’s easily one of the most exciting debut films in recent years and it announces writer/director/producer/editor/star Evan Glodell as a major new filmmaker.

But again: just because it’s great, doesn’t mean it’s an easy sell. Which is why I’m so jazzed by “Bellflower”‘s trailer: it makes the movie look so freaking cool. Which it is! But the marketing wizards at Oscilloscope or whoever they hired to cut this thing managed to sum up the movie perfectly in the most stylish way possible. The music choices, the use of varying film speeds, the lines, the editing; this really is one of the best, if not the best trailer of 2011 so far. Take a look for yourself.

“Bellflower” opens in New York and Los Angeles on August 5, and expands from there; for a full list of playdates go to In the meantime, be sure to whet your appetite for the movie with my review, which you can read here. I can’t wait to see it again.

Portlandia Goes Out With A Bang

Posted by on

The end is near. In mere days Portlandia wraps up its final season, and oh what a season it’s been. Lucky for you, you can watch the entire season right now right here and on the IFC app, including this free episode courtesy of Subaru.

But now, let’s take a moment to look back at some of the new classics Fred and Carrie have so thoughtfully bestowed upon us. (We’ll be looking back through tear-blurred eyes, but you do you.)

It’s not that being single sucks, it’s that you suck if you’re single.

A sketch for anyone who has cancelled more appointments than they’ve kept. Which is everyone.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
