Combine two films

#1

Post by AdamH » August 9th, 2011, 2:47 pm

Inspired by 'The Jaws of Satantango", what films do you think could be combined to make a great film?

I mean in terms of plot rather than title (but either will do).

Satantango badly needed shark attacks in between the hours of people walking. :P

thanks, Local Hero, but I couldn't think up any suitable blurbs. Anyone else like to try?

The first is probably about male menopause and getting out of the rat race and back to the land....

I guess the film I'm writing now could be called Black Swan Drive (Black Swan/Mulholland Drive). I wrote the script, then saw Black Swan and was horrified that it has a similar theme. However, it is different enough, that might be okay.

I haven't seen Black Swan (yet), but I'm under the impression that it's the same theme as Polanski's Repulsion. "Repulsion Drive" isn't too bad a title, is it?

Not too bad at all. In fact, maybe it's even closer to Repulsion. Man, I just love Polanski. :lol: :wub:

Was just talking about Zach and Miri today. Someone was asking me about my favorite Kevin Smith film. Was just trying to think of Kevin Smith titles. Zach and Miri obviously isn't my favorite. :pinch: ;)
