Big things are in store this year for lovable curmudgeon (not always, but sometimes) Patton Oswalt. According to his blog, Big Fan, a low-budget indie film he stars in will compete at Sundance this year. It's called Big Fan, which he describes as "the best movie and biggest mistake I've ever made." In the meantime, he's once again hosting a screening of another little indie called The Snake, described as "the funniest movie about dating a bulimic." Mr. Oswalt really likes the film, and that's an endorsement you can trust.
