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