You Have One Chance to See 'Harmontown' at the Loft

Posted By on Mon, Oct 13, 2014 at 11:30 AM

Not that you don't have enough to see in movie theaters in the next week or so (Skeleton Twins! Kill the Messenger! Gone Girl! The Loft Film Festival! Left Behind...well, maybe not that one), but if you want to see Harmontown, a documentary about Community creator Dan Harmon and the "concert" tour he embarked on after being fired from the show he created (before eventually getting it back).

The AV Club gave the film a B, if that helps:

In a cliché so pronounced it couldn’t work anywhere but in a documentary (and even then, it’s sometimes a stretch), it turns out that Harmon only wants to be loved. So after being fired from Community after its third season, he decides to take his warts-and-all podcast on the road in order to connect with his small but very worshipful fan base. The shows come across as shambolic but somehow magical: Harmon is joined onstage by his co-host Jeff Bryan Davis and a fantastic, plucked-from-obscurity sidekick named Spencer Crittenden, whose chief job is Dungeon Master for onstage Dungeons & Dragons games. The shows are frequently drunken revelries, with Harmon talking about whatever pops into his head, unfiltered, as well as doing some impromptu singing and crowd surfing. It feels like an inclusive celebration, with a beloved, drunken ringmaster at the center.

Harmontown screens at the Loft tonight at 7 p.m. Regular admission prices apply.
