The Funny Scene:
is brutal. But before all those jugulars get sliced, the real bashing starts as the Davison family sit down for an anniversary dinner.
Drake (Joe Swanberg) and his wife Kelly (Margaret Laney) lay into sister Aimee (Amy Seimetz)’s indie filmmaker boyfriend, Rafiq (Ti West.)
Voices thick with undetected sarcasm, they volley back and forth, taking jabs at him about his documentary being shown at an underground film festival. The two chime out their round of punches by offering him some advice: commercials are really where it’s at.
Of course, the biggest in-joke here is that most of the scene’s talking heads (Joe Swanberg, Ti West, Amy Seimetz) are not only real-life pals, but indie filmmakers themselves.
Most Quotable Line:
“What, they show the films underground?”
