Movie Preview: Patton Oswalt in Big Fan

When I saw that this indie drama featured Patton Oswalt in the lead role, I scratched my head a bit. I've come to associate Oswalt with the funny projects (and with Ratatouille) but by the time I was done watching the trailer for Big Fan, I'd completely forgotten who Patton Oswalt was. In the movie, Oswalt transforms into Paul Aufiero, a New York Giants megafan whose life starts to spin out of control after he's assaulted by his favorite player.

Big Fan was written and directed by Robert D. Siegel, the guy who penned the screenplay for The Wrestler, and there are definite similarities between these two films. This story of a sad, lonely man is shot in such a realistic fashion, I first thought it was actually a documentary about football fans.

The movie screened at this year's Sundance and will open in limited release starting Aug. 28. To check out the trailer,

Patton Oswalt was spectacular in this movie. Saw it at Sundance and liked it up until the ending which spiraled wildly out of control.

This looks ammmmmazing. Funny guys sometimes do drama really well, like Jim Carey in Eternal Sunshine. Patton's stand up can be pretty dark, like Mitch Hedberg...so this makes sense
