Ingrid Goest West

There’s an excellent dark comedy playing in theaters at the moment, Ingrid Goes West. At this year’s Sundance Film Festival, editor-in-chief Peter Sciretta wrote director Matt Spicer‘s film “is not just your average comedy film, but a smart commentary on our social media obsessed world.” It’s a story about obsession, Instagram, bad vibes, and the wrong kind of Squad Goals. The movie already has one fantastic poster, but now it’s been given the Mondo treatment.

Not only did Mondo print a striking new poster, but they’re also selling a whole batch of goodies related to the film. We may not ever be able to buy Ingrid Thorburn (Aubrey Plaza) and Dan Pinto (O’Shea Jackson) action figures, but at least we can purchase some great Mondo merchandise that’ll delight any fan of the movie.

Below, check out the Ingrid Goes West Mondo poster, vinyl cover, and more.

Ingrid Goes West

Characters talking on the phone or looking at a phone can be pretty boring in a movie. That’s not the case with Matt Spicer’s Ingrid Goes West, in which his deeply lonely protagonist, Ingrid Thorburn (Aubrey Plaza), spends a lot of her time and life on her iPhone. It’s a great character who elicits empathy, laughs, shock, and some cringes.

Ingrid grows obsessed with an Insta-celeb, Taylor (Elizabeth Olsen), who she goes a long way to befriend. Some of the character’s Instagram hashtag-heavy posts in the movie were shared during production on the social media app.

With Ingrid Thorburn (Aubrey Plaza) leading the way in Ingrid Goes West, it’s often tough to predict which direction Matt Spicer‘s dark comedy will go in next. Ingrid goes to great lengths to turn Taylor Sloane (Elizabeth Olsen) into her best friend so the whole world can see her Instagram. Aubrey’s character searches for a friend in a sad, laugh-filled descent in the sunny, “good vibes only” part of California.

Ingrid Goes West calls to mind movies like The Cable GuyTaxi Driver, and The Talented Mr. Ripley. There’s a loneliness to the lead characters of those movies that can also be found in Ingrid. Her motive is wanting friendship. Yeah, she’s deceptive in the course of her journey, but so are a lot of the characters in Spicer’s feature directorial debut, which he co-wrote with David Branson Smith.

Below, check out our Matt Spicer interview, where we chat all about the new movie, which is in theaters today.

Ingrid Goes West Red Band Trailer

If you’re looking for some motivation to stop scrolling through Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat and all that nonsense, the indie dark comedy Ingrid Goes West might help cure you of your incessant desire to stay connected to everyone through your phone.

The movie, which premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, follows Parks and Recreation star Aubrey Plaza as the titular social media obsessed stalker who latches on to someone she meets online, adapts her personality to become best friends with them, and inevitably ruins the relationship when she becomes way too clingy. A new red band trailer just debuted which shows how crazy Ingrid can get as she tries to impress a social media celebrity played by Elizabeth Olsen.

Ingrid Goes West trailer

Here’s the second trailer for Ingrid Goes West, a satire of Instagram culture and obsession that marks the directorial debut of filmmaker Matt Spicer. Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation) plays Ingrid, a pathetic stalker who develops an obsession of an Insta-celeb named Taylor (Elizabeth Olsen). When Ingrid heads across the country to ingratiate herself into Taylor’s life, things seem to go well before they quickly go off the rails.

The Little Hours review

The Little Hours is based on one of the tales found in The Decameron, a collection of 14th century novellas from Italian author Giovanni Boccaccio. But even if, like me, you’d never heard of that author before (let alone read his work), all you really need to know about this film is that it features a cast of hilarious people doing filthy, hysterical things. The trailer prominently features a quote from the Catholic League that refers to the movie as “pure trash” – but there’s an important distinction that needs to be made there. It may be trashy, but it’s definitely not trash. The Little Hours is one of the funniest films of 2017. Read More »

If your parents or grandparents are the churchgoing types, then The Little Hours is the number one movie to take them to see this summer! Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza, and Kate Micucci play three charming nuns who are relatively nonchalant about the rules. They get a little rowdier in Jeff Baena‘s film when the hired hand Massetto (Dave Franco) arrives at the convent.

Below, watch The Little Hours trailer.

The Little Hours Trailer

Last year, director Martin Scorsese brought us Silence, a pensive, harrowing story of 17th-century Portuguese missionaries, who embark on a perilous journey to Japan to find their missing mentor and struggle with the decision of renouncing their faith or suffering an agonizing death. This year, director Jeff Baena brings us a trio of raunchy, horny nuns who just want to fuck the new servant at their convent.

The Little Hours follows Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza and Kate Micucci as three nuns who are anything but holy. I’ll just leave it at that, because the red band trailer does a much better job of showing you just how wild these sisters can get. Watch red band The Little Hours trailer below. Yes, this is NSFW because of ample dirty language and even some nudity. Read More »

Ingrid Goest West Trailer

One of the buzzed about titles from the 2017 Sundance Film Festival this year was Ingrid Goes West, a dark comedy about a girl (Aubrey Plaza of Parks and Recreation) who lives vicariously through those she follows on Instagram and has delusions of her friendship with them. The film was one of the many that got picked up from the festival this year, and now you can watch the first Ingrid Goes West trailer to see what you have to look forward to. But beware, because this is a red band trailer, due to one particularly inappropriate word being used rather viciously. Read More »
