“Found Footage Festival 2008”

The third incarnation of the FFF may be the best yet

Should you attend this year’s “Found Footage Festival” at the Coolidge Corner, these are the images you will never be able to un-see: a woman who is way too juiced up about cat massage; a man who performs science experiments on his own phlegm; a dangerous nerd knife-fighting a side of beef; an avalanche of green-screened babies; a sensual mature Angela Lansbury in a bathtub. After years of rummaging through Goodwill bins for videotapes, FFF curators Joe Pickett and Nick Prueher (whose credentials include the Onion and The Late Show with David Letterman) have amassed a formidable pile of bizarre ephemera — and they’re only too eager to rape your mind with it. With all-new film finds, tighter montages, and more elaborate original skits (like “Talkin’ Beards,” a cable-access parody with Chris Elliott), the third incarnation of the FFF may just be their best work yet. Folks, if the words “Winnebago Man” mean anything to you, pre-order tickets for this one-night Coolidge screening NOW. 120 minutes | Coolidge Corner: October 9
