All indie film is pretentious, part two


Just as I was reply­ing to posts from my pre­vi­ous thread, “Is there an ‘indie-film’ stereo­type?”, this was deliv­ered to my inbox:

Indie film exhibits all the errors of the Genre

My first thought: BAH-HA-hahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

My sec­ond thought: “You know, this really would have been bril­liant, if only the author had a good grasp of homonyms and spelling…” (the cou­ple errors have since been rectified)

But my third thought finally was some­thing rel­e­vant. Namely, that the review was exactly what I was talk­ing about the other day. Mas­tracci nails sev­eral com­mon inde­pen­dent film topoi, and then slams the film for liv­ing down to those stereo­typ­i­cal expectations.

I feel so validated…
