After a 10 year hiatus from the big screen, the god of mockumentary comedy is back.
Christopher Guest, who’s best known for turning his amp up to 11 in This is Spinal Tap and ridiculing weirdo obsessives in Best In Show, Waiting for Guffman and A Mighty Wind, has found a new subculture to crack wise on: humans who are paid to wear giant, plush costumes. It's called Mascots.
Guest's film, which premieres on Netflix October 13, looks like a perfect fit with the rest of his oeuvre, right down the the casting of many of his longtime collaborators, including Jane Lynch, Parker Posey, Fred Willard, and Jennifer Coolidge.
Alongside them is a newcomer that a minor league hockey team is almost definitely going to adopt as its mascot: The Fist.
