THE VIDEOGAMER KILLED THE INDIE FILM STAR
I don’t know what’s funnier in Karina Longworth’s very amusing blog post at Spout, “Five Indie Films that Should Be Video Games” — the five titles or the purportedly real news that Juno is in the process of being turned into a game.
The five films are Gummo, Happiness, Redacted, The Brown Bunny and Mutual Appreciation, of which Lombard writes:
Think Guitar Hero meets The Legend of Zelda. After every performance, instead of moving on to the next song, you have to wander around Brooklyn, battling your way through awkward encounters with girls and weird older dudes who are friends of your parents. Instead of a boomerang, you stun girls and enemies (well, mostly just girls) with imprecise language and inscrutable passivity. This one may do better on the European market.
Wait a second — I think I played that recently…
