“Lollilove” on IMDB
Action, 64 Minutes, 2004
This ultra-low budget (the reported budget was $2000) mockumentary marks Jenna Fischer’s [IMDB] directorial debut. I’ve said it before and I still stand by it: Jenna Fischer can do no wrong. James Gunn [IMDB] can do wrong (unlike Jenna, he’s only human) but more often than not doesn’t.
“Punching the Clown” on IMDB
Comedy, 91 Minutes, 2009
The “mockumentary” style has been a little overdone lately but this is nicely refreshing and has some genuine, laugh-out-loud moments. It’s far from perfect but it has a depth that allows it to overcome its problems. In all the best ways this reminds me of genre classics like “Best in Show” or “Comic Book: The Movie”.
