“the merging of reality and representation around film characters and the proliferation of intense, yet diverse, audience reactions.” (Chris Holmlund’s Reading Character with a Vengeance: The Fatal Attraction Phenomenon” from The Velvet Light Trap, Number 27, Spring 1991) inglorious basterds anyone?
THE WORST MUSIC VIDEO OF ALL TIME fool’s gold - surprise hotel (directed by Matthew Lessner) for some reason I decided to continue watching…because I figured that it just couldn’t get any worse.
