While there are many reasons the film could and should make cult status, there’s something quintessentially Gonzo about the whole thing. A lead actor who takes the role because he likes the title. Then finds out they want to change the title. And makes sure they don’t. A preview “audience” that intervenes and changes scripts and scenes (partly via web competitions) until a PG-13 becomes an R rated film. Extra footage shot as a result. A veritable Hollywood of related and snowballed material sprouting out of the web, particularly at Youtube and similar sites. Mock advertisements and trailers and film snippets, mock mock trailers and snippets. And a statement by the lead actor that it will win best film at next year’s MTV awards. Unless knocked out by its own sequel.
So I had to tell RageBoy.
Who, being RageBoy, pointed me back at this.
Wonderful. [Warning: Contains strong language.]
