As I’m sure the filmmakers intended, and as I’m sure many internet heads are feeling, I’ve been extremely intrigued and excited to see the Tim & Eric starring film The Comedy ever since it’s particularly vitriolic and poor reception at this year’s Sundance Festival. The screening was apparently liberally peppered with walkouts, some calling the pitch dark comedy one of the most grating movie experiences ever. Nice!
This initial teaser doesn’t do much to dispel those rumors, instead proudly displaying negative reviews about the film, which centers on Tim’s character, an entitled hipster stereotype who I believe just goes around New York with Eric and James Murphy being a real shitbox to everyone, and not in an endearing or rakish way but in a way that makes you really sad about humanity. Can’t wait for this one to drop in mid October.- Whole Milk
