UNDERRATED: 'Crystal Fairy & The Magical Cactus' (2013)

Walking a tightly drawn line between engrossing and annoying, this drug-fueled road movie directed by Sebastián Silva ostensibly centers on a puffy-haired Michael Cera, who skewers every narcissistic cliche of the pretentious young American seeking enlightenment abroad. But the film belongs to costar Gaby Hoffmann, who finds a frail vulnerability as the loopy hippie of the film's name. IFC Films
