Thurs 10/13: 'Mascots' (NETFLIX)
Known for his beloved cult-classics like Spinal Tap and Best In Show, director Christopher Guest is now taking on the intriguing world of professional sports mascots. Utilizing his familiar mockumentary style, the film follows a group of ultra-competitive half-time performers as they battle for a mythological award in the mascot field, called the Gold Fluffy. Beyond the expectedly brilliant dialogue, the subject material allows for some top-notch physical comedy. The cast is a bevy of talent, including Jane Lynch, Parker Posey, Fred Willard, Brad Williams, Zach Woods, Chris O’Dowd, and Bob Balaban.
