A lonely weed dealer spirals when she tries to make conversation with an uninterested client. “Sativa,” directed by Kelly Cooper and Johnny Frohman, is an absurd sketch film built around a loopy performance from Cooper and a pointless query. Tynan DeLong plays a musician working on a dog food commercial jingle who is forced to start from scratch after getting notes from a producer. That’s when his drug dealer arrives to break his concentration by detailing crazy stories of her life — she worked on a Titanic-themed cruise ship before being stuck at sea for six months — and then becoming utterly fixated on thinking up a saying for the weed strain, Sativa, that would reflect the nature of its high, like Indica for “in the couch.” An in-joke with ludicrous behavior and perfect weed effect descriptions (“so anxious, it’s amazing,” “a dope car accident”), the film is a showcase for Cooper colored in with a cast/crew of NoBudge regulars. -KA.
