TERRI (Azazel Jacobs, 2011)

In Azazel Jacobs' hands quirky-melancholy Sundance stereotypes - an obese outcast who wears pyjamas to school, John C. Reilly - somehow become arresting, human.

A climactic sequence in particular, which brings together a grotesquely mismatched trio of pariahs, is a revelation. It exudes the immediacy of a dream, the intimacy of a high school secret, and the penetrating insight of, well, Azazel Jacobs.
