How the Institutional Racism of Yesterday Still Reverberates Today
I've been squirting Michael Cera OUT THE ASS this week, but you should probably really watch this trailer for his new indie film Crystal Fairy and the Magic Cactus (Just a smidge of NSFW). Here's the very apt description!
On a trip through Chile a boorish American expat named Jamie (Michael Cera) and three Chilean brothers plan to set off in search of the prized San Pedro cactus and its promise of beachy hallucinations. But in the previous night's drunken stupor Jamie invites a free-spirited fellow American (Gaby Hoffmann), whose devil-may-care worldview gives them more of an adventure than any of them had bargained for.
Guys! GABY HOFFMANN! Yes, Field of Dreams' Gaby Hoffman! And her eyebrows are A-MAY-ZING. Oh, and Michael Cera's in it too... so that's pretty cool, I guess. I want to watch this whole thing!!
