Last week, my review of Sundance feature In A World…, the debut feature from writer/director Lake Bell, was published by Medium Rare TV in the Bay Area. I have taken deep pleasure in a long-standing relationship with them, including employment, internship, and festival coverage.
The film is a bright comedy in the Apatuvian mold, and reps a tremendous entertainment with Bell at the center as star and progenitor. Her movie co-stars comic performers including Demetri Martin, Nick Offerman, Tig Notaro, Fred Melamed, Rob Corddry, Micaela Watkins, and the inimitable Ken Marino. With this batch of actors, Bell mines gold from the world of voice-over performances, and demonstrates her aptitude for actual filmmaking. Here’s hoping she continues to pursue behind-the-camera work.
