One of the movies that I did enjoy but have not yet reviewed is Baghead from directors Jay and Mark Duplass, the guys who brought you The Puffy Chair in 2005. Their entry to this year’s Sundance Film Festival was incredibly well received by critics — as well as a few distributors. It is the story of four failed actors who head to a cabin in the woods to try and write themselves a movie, only to find a creepy dude with a bag over his head that would like to terrorize them.

Showing that they were most impressed was Sony Pictures Classics, who picked the North American distribution rights to the film for an amount in the “mid to high six figures”. The report comes to me from Anne Thompson over at Variety. Its good to see this one get picked up as it was a lot of fun — not great, but a lot of fun, especially on a low budget.

Keep an eye on our Sundance 2008 Homepage for more from Park City.
