Available to Members
Double Feature | Year 12 (2008)

Lang’s Fairy Books meet Grimms’ Fairy Tales. Rhyming Doo-wop films, Donkey Skin and The Brothers Grimm. Eric hates fun. You watch Jacques Demy’s Donkey Skin carefully. French New Wave. The phone is fine, but why’s there a helicopter? Flaying a donkey and wearing its skin can be off-putting. Also something about incest. Most importantly, cake-baking. Terry Gilliam’s The Brothers Grimm is very American. Major Hollywood film look and feel. Grim reboots. The evolution of fantasy films into superhero films. Lost franchise potential. Unique inaccessibility. The battle between arthouse and blockbuster franchise choices. Will Johnny Depp have another Killapalooza? Production hell as a film motif.
