The Do-Deca-Pentathlon (7/6, 9:45pm)

From Jay and Mark Duplass (the writer/directors of the Sundance hits The Puffy Chair, Cyrus and Jeff, Who Lives at Home) comes The Do-Deca-Pentathlon, the story of two grown brothers who secretly compete in a homemade Olympics during a family reunion. When their fierce and disruptive competition is uncovered, the brothers must choose between their passion for beating the hell out of each other and the greater good of the family. “Amidst this pandemonium the Duplass Brothers find a surprising sense of emotion and resonance, due in part to the film’s insistence on expertly underplaying both its drama and laughs. But far more influential is their respect for the dignity of suburbia that few other filmmakers even bother trying to relate to anymore. It’s this respect for the genuine world and the people who live in it that somehow morphs The Do-Deca-Pentathlon into one of the greatest films ever made on the subject of brother-catharsis.” (BadAss Digest)
