If you are skipping Sundance, this parody trailer can supply all the sobbing, the grit, the winsome mental illness, and the quirky comforts of first-world poverty that you are missing. "Not Another Sundance Movie," created by sketch comedy troupe Tastes Funny, rolls every indie film cliche you ever forgave into a 2-minute-45-second trailer.
