New Trailer For Music-Based Drama ‘I Am Not A Hipster’

Ignore the title – this film has ‘hipster’ written all over it! Today we can bring you the trailer for indie drama I Am Not A Hipster, a Sundance Film Festival 2012 favourite, directed by Destin Cretton.

The film follows Brook (Dominic Bogart), a talented but tortured singer/songwriter who is struggling to come to terms with the death of his mother. His life is suddenly shaken up by the arrival of his three sisters (Lauren Coleman, Tammy Minoff and Kandis Erickson), as they travel to scatter their mother’s ashes. Their magical charm seems to rub off onto Brook, as he starts to think he might find some hope after all.

Although the reviews seem to have blown people away, the trailer really doesn’t impress me; it irritates me more than anything. Hasn’t the ‘depressed, self-absorbed musician’ character been done to death already? Apparently not.

Watch: One Final Trailer for Indie Fave 'I Am Not a Hipster' Debuts

"A film that, even if you hate hipsters, you may fall in love with, just like me." Yep, that's what I'm quoted as saying (from this review) in this new and, likely, final trailer for Destin Cretton's I Am Not a Hipster, a film that premiered at Sundance last year as one of my favorites of the fest. Despite that title and what it sounds like, it's not a film about hipsters, it's an emotional, entertaining, heartfelt and easily lovable indie musical drama about a struggling family. Dominic Bogart stars as Brook, with Tammy Minoff, Lauren Coleman and Kandis Erickson as his three sisters, and Alvaro Orlando as his friend. I re-watched this recently and really enjoyed it again, such a great film, it's worth seeing when possible. Fantastic final trailer.

Sundance 2012 Review: Trade In Your Ironic T-Shirts For a Dose of Emotion in ‘I Am Not A Hipster’

Brook (Dominic Bogart) is not a hipster – he may wear deep V-neck t-shirts, plaid and have an overwhelmingly self-deprecating attitude, but a hipster he is not (or so the title of this film claims.) Brook is an aspiring musician and while he is having a good amount of success on the San Diego indie music scene, he seems bitter and angry. Brook hates compliments and recognition, which is slightly ironic considering his best friend, Clarke (Alvaro Orlando), is his biggest fan (a fact he announces daily.) While doing a local radio interview Brook seems incredibly disinterested, almost laughing at himself for even being there, but this feeling quickly devolves into combative when the host (Brad William Henke) asks him about his mother (who passed away two years earlier.) Brook flips out and leaves the studio and it is in this moment that we begin to realize what may be the real root of Brook’s behavior. Brook

Watch the Trailer and Listen to the Soundtrack for Amusingly Titled Sundance 2012 Selection ‘I Am Not a Hipster’

Watch the Trailer and Listen to the Soundtrack for Amusingly Titled Sundance 2012 Selection ‘I Am Not a Hipster’
[1] As a former resident of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, a.k.a. The Hipster Capital of the World, one joke I've heard (and, okay, repeated) a lot is that you can always tell a hipster by how vehemently he insists he's not a hipster. By that standard, the Sundance 2012 flick I Am Not a Hipster could just be the hipster film to end all hipster films. Whatever that means. Written and directed by first-time feature helmer Destin Daniel Cretton, I Am Not a Hipster follows characters in the indie art and music scene. Appropriately enough, given the material, the movie also features a melancholy indie rock soundtrack by the Canines, with several of their tracks from the movie already available for streaming or downloading. Watch the trailer and find out where to get the music after the jump. [via Bleeding Cool [2]] Starring Dominic Bogart, Alvaro Orlando, Brad William Henke, Tammy Minoff, Kandis Erickson, and Lauren Coleman,

Sundance 2012 announces Spotlight, Park City at Midnight, and more
Following up their initial competition announcement the folks at the Sundance Film Festival have released the names of thirty additional 2012 selections, in the Spotlight, Park City at Midnight, Next, and New Frontiers sections.

Although these sections tend to focus more on young and up-and-coming filmmakers (particularly the Next sidebar, which was created just a few years ago with that specific mandate), you might find a few names you recognize in the full list of invited films below. Next is where you'll find the new film from "Great World of Sound" director Craig Zobel; it's called "Compliance" and it's described as the (based-on-a-)true story of what happens "when a prank caller convinces a fast food restaurant manager to interrogate an innocent young employee." Lynn Shelton, director of "Humpday," will premiere "Your Sister's Sister" starring Emily Blunt, Rosemarie DeWitt and "Humpday"s Mark Duplass. Duplass also wrote his wife Katie Aselton

Trailer For Sundance Premiere ‘I Am Not A Hipster’ and Full Soundtrack Streaming

  • The Film Stage
Hipsters. Everybody hates them and nobody knows exactly what they are. Without a trailer, I’d have no idea what to expect from a film titled I Am Not A Hipster. That movie, which was selected as part of Sundace’s new Next <=> program (yes, that’s the real logo), does have a trailer, and it looks like it’s about a hipster. Check it out below.

From the program notes:

I Am Not A Hipster / U.S.A. (Director and screenwriter: Destin Daniel Cretton) — Set in the indie music and art scene, this is a character-driven story exploring themes of love, loss and what it means to be creative in the face of tragedy. Cast: Dominic Bogart, Alvaro Orlando, Brad William Henke, Tammy Minoff, Kandis Erickson, Lauren Coleman.

I may not be an expert on hipsters, but I know you’re not going to pull a hipster audience without hipster music.

Zobel, Zellner, Carrie Preston and Matt Ross Directing Debuts Among Sundance's Next Section

Now in its third year, Sundance's Next section (which describes its works as "bold", and "innovative" (think more accessible than and just as low budget as the stuff we find in the New Frontiers section) grabs our attention because of its inclusion of Craig Zobel's latest effort, Compliance a true story drama perhaps in the same budget range as Great World of Sound. Other alumni embedded in this group of nine include: Helmer Destin Daniel Cretton (who one in Park City a couple of years back for Short Term 12) returns with his feature debut, I Am Not a Hipster and the Zellner bros. are back again with their latest, Kid-Thing (the teaser on Kickstarter seriously rocks).

Sundance 2012 Out of Competition Films Announced

Sundance 2012 Out of Competition Films Announced
Yesterday the Sundance Film Festival announced the core lineup of films [1] that will be spotlit in the Competition slates at the 2012 festival. Now we've got a lineup of films that will play out of competition in the Spotlight, Park City at Midnight, Next <=> and New Frontier schedules. There are a few films in here with which you might be nominally familiar, like The Raid, Grabbers and Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie, not to mention Andrea Arnold's new version of Wuthering Heights. But many are new announcements. While the competition lineups are always a good place to look for some of the films that will be the most talked-about in the year following each Sundance fest, these schedules are where some of the more unique and provocative films live. There are still some big premieres to be announced next week, but if I was making a big Sundance wishlist,

Sundance Announces Spotlight, Midnight, Next, New Frontier Lineups

  • MUBI
Following yesterday's announcement of the titles lined up for the four programs of the Competition, the Sundance Film Festival has unveiled the lineups of its out-of-competition sections: Spotlight, Park City at Midnight, Next <=> and New Frontier. This time, I'm going to go ahead and copy-n-paste the release nearly in full because, well, these are, potentially at least, the more interesting batches.

We'll cut in just as Trevor Groth, Director of Programming for the Sundance Film Festival, is saying, “In many ways, the extremes of the Festival’s program are most readily apparent in our out-of-competition sections, which showcase the wildest comedies, the most terrifying horror films and uncompromised visions from singular voices springing up from around the country and the world. We hope audiences experiment with their film selections to an equal degree as these filmmakers have experimented with their storytelling.”
