There’s a new trailer doing the rounds, and it is for a film we can only describe as looking bizarre. An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn stars Aubrey Plaza, Jemaine Clement, Emile Hirsch and Craig Robinson.
It comes from the genuinely inimitable Jim Hosking, whose last film The Greasy Strangler was by far and away the strangest movie we’ve ever seen. At the time critics called it “divisive” but I refute that. It wasn’t divisive at all, it was just bat shit insane (which everyone agrees on), and had the world’s ugliest penis on display far too often. It also made the phrase “bullshit artist” more memorable than anything ever has before.
I’m not really sure there’s anything else to say about the new film at this point. To be honest I’ve watched the trailer 3 times and I have no clue what’s going on. What I do know is I like what I see, and that Jemaine Clement talking about cheesy onion rings has made my Friday better.
So yeah we’ll be giving An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn an opening night viewing if only out of some perverse curiosity.
