'An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn'

All hail Aubrey Plaza, an actress who's been proving she's far more than human embodiment of a deadpan glare – and someone isn't afraid to take things far, far out there. (See, for example, this.) She's at the center of this Jim Hosking's mondo absurdist tale of a woman named Lulu Danger searching for a "mysterious man from her past" (played by Craig Robinson) who is mounting a one-night-only theater piece called "An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn." Should you think this isn't wacky enough, her Legion costar Jemaine Clement shows up to steal back some missing loot from Emile Hirsch's con man. We feel duty-bound to remind folks that Hosking's did The Greasy Strangler, a gag-reflex test of a movie that's suggests the filmmaker has studied early John Waters flicks like Torah scrolls. That could be a bug or a feature here.
