2011. Canada. Directed by Aaron Houston. With Amitai Marmorstein, Patrick Gilmore, Ben Cotton. A Canadian television children's program, produced by a pornographer and his hot-pants wife, needs a new puppeteer. Near the end of the audition process only four candidates are left standing, but all four—including a homophobic evangelical Christian and a teenage Goth who calls herself Satan's Spawn—are truly something to behold. Huston's confident debut film is a raunchy, hilarious mockumentary about the trials and humiliations of entertainers in search of employment—and a biting satire on the business of making "reality" movies.
