A few years ago I saw a very funny indie comedy at the SXSW film festival, wrote my review of the flick, and then pretty much forgot about it. But now that "Blackballed: The Bobby Dukes Story" is finally getting released on DVD, I’m quite happy to recommend it to fans of Christopher Guest movies, paintball, and/or "The Daily Show."
"Blackballed" is a low-budget mockumentary about the world’s finest paintball player, and the way in which he mounts a rousing comeback after humiliating himself and bailing on the sport. Starring Jon Stewart‘s good buddy Rob Corddry, the flick’s a lot like "Best in Show" meets … paintball.
The comedy opened in (very) limited release, but the DVD hits shelves on July 25th. Check out the trailer to see if the concept tickles your funny bone. Me, I’m looking forward to giving it a second spin.
