The trailer opens with a message to the audience: "The following preview has been approved for jealous and bitter filmmakers by the Motion Picture Association of America Inc."
Fade in on graffiti-covered walls. The soundtrack — plaintive synth strings under rhythmic clapping — swells onto scenes of rusted fencing, an abandoned couch near an abandoned shed and other evocations of ennui.
If you are skipping Sundance, this parody trailer can supply all the sobbing, the grit, the winsome mental illness, and the quirky comforts of first-world poverty that you are missing. "Not Another Sundance Movie," created by sketch comedy troupe Tastes Funny, rolls every indie film cliche you ever forgave into a 2-minute-45-second trailer.
There are tatty vehicles. There are unmade beds. There are clarinets. There is "a stirring performance by a young ethnic girl that’s guaranteed to be nominated for an Oscar but not win, subsequently leading her to fall back into obscurity, hit rock bottom and show up on celebrity rehab after having a child at 16."
