What Indie watches when it's not reading Pitchfork

Here's the trailer for the new flick 500 Days of Summer. You will gather almost immediately that this movie is attempting to be the most "indie" film of all time. (Look out Garden State!) Just when you don't think it can get any more indie, BAM! A Feist (or Feist-ish) song! BAM! Running through a department store! BAM! Rotoscoping on top of live action!

500 Days of Summer trailer

It seems the premise (as usually) is falling in love, when it's just not the right time, with someone you're destined to be with yet can't because of both of your irreconcilable idiosyncrasies.You know, I wouldn't care. I would feel the agony of love-lost a million times over to just be in love with Zoe Deschanel for a week. Actually, I think I did fall in love with her after Elf came out. I should've claimed her them

Damn you, Ben Gibbard, and your wily indie ways!

You know, she's pretty and all, but Zooey D. is as wobbly as Woody Allen's career.

She was great in 'All the Real Girls.' (see it if you haven't!)

But what's been gold since then?

I don't know. I haven't seen a new movie in about 345935 years.

That's unfortunate. It only came out 6 years ago.

Um, also on the list of things EVERYONE should see (and not solely because I'm Jewish):

Waltz with Bashir

Israeli animated movie about israel's involvement in the sabra and shatila massacres. I'm still confused as to why it didn't win best foreign...I thought Jews controlled Hollywood?
