Must Love Jaws
Watch The Original
Thanks to Kash there are no jaws!
This is a nice example of deconstruction of an original narration. The fake is so hilarious because the very time we recognize something familiar it goes against our memories and expectations. The original is broken into fragments. Original intentions are destroyed. They are recombined into what is essentially old, but moves and looks anew. The soundtrack makes even more pushes to the visual corpse of the movie.
It is also a metaphor for what some stumblers do.
"Kuleshov edited a short film in which shots of the face of Ivan Mozzhukhin (a Tsarist matinee idol) are alternated with various other shots (a plate of soup, a girl, an old woman's coffin). The film was shown to an audience who believed that the expression on Mozzhukhin's face was different each time he appeared, depending on whether he was "looking at" the plate of soup, the girl, or the coffin, showing an expression of hunger, desire or grief respectively. Actually the footage of Mozzhukhin was identical, and rather expressionless, every time it appeared."
"Kuleshov demonstrated the necessity of considering montage as the basic tool of cinema art. In Kuleshov's view, the cinema consists of fragments and the assembly of those fragments, the assembly of elements which in reality are distinct. It is therefore not the content of the images in a film which is important, but their combination. The raw materials of such an art work need not be original, but are pre-fabricated elements which can be deconstructed and re-assembled by the artist into new juxtapositions."
