"The Comedy" inspired walk-outs and raves alike when it premiered at this year's Sundance Festival. Critics however, were uniform in praising the not-really-a-comedy about an aging hipster in Brooklyn who pushes the limits of societal norms.

In the exclusive clip below, the movie's star, comedian Tim Heidecker, finds a bar in a predominantly black part of Brooklyn and does his best to "represent Williamsburg," which makes for a very uncomfortable scene. Let us know what you think of Heidecker's performance, and director Rick Alverson's choices.

Will you be seeing this controversial movie when it hits theaters this fall? Let us know in the comments section.
