The truth eventually comes out, as it must, and it's not exactly a stunner.
August 29, 2008
A refreshingly brisk and modest salvo from the American independent film front, proving there's still interesting life in the scruffy, shot-on-video genre.

Baghead is at its best when it captures the subtleties of romantic machinations, macho power plays and the indignity of women aging in Hollywood.
August 15, 2008
The coda, even if it doesn't wholly work, should have some sobering lessons for would-be filmmakers who see this. Kids, try this at home.

he brothers Duplass have a knack for the to-and-fro of modern relationships. Their horror sense is less acute, but at least they understand that when the budget is low, it's best to keep the villain in the shadows.

Too bad the characters are so rote. The women are almost nonentities, and the bond between the men borders on the maudlin. The actors are often better than their lines.

Even in the spookiest woods in the dead of night, there will be no difficulty figuring this one out.

Although the final act telegraphs the endgame a little too obviously, Baghead is nevertheless a late summer treat.

The problem with Baghead isn't that it's cheaply made but that it's sloppily composed.

Keep your eyes open, and there are lots of other, subtler things going on.

The movie's cheap, it's clever -- it's even a little scary in places.
August 1, 2008
A raw, wickedly clever comedy that also includes moments of genuine terror.

He [baghead] is obviously simply a device to make the movie long enough to qualify as a feature, and the denouement will be one of stunning underwhelmingness.
July 28, 2008
A funny, scary send-up of filmmakers.
July 25, 2008
The movie's concern with its characters' shifting alliances and petty vanities also evokes early John Sayles and, at times, Eric Rohmer.
July 25, 2008
A very short and cheerfully scruffy comedy-thriller by the Duplass brothers.

I want to persuade you to see Baghead, but I don't want to overhype it, because in many ways it's a delicate construction best served as a surprise.
