The French Lieutenant's Woman is being watched at my homestead, entirely against my will.
Anyway, It's a movie within a movie. The characters are making a movie. And that's the movie.
The only other cinematic "turducken" I can remember is Day For Night.
Can you think of any others?
haha .. you said turd .....
Pale Fire by Vladamir Nabokov is a **** fine novel buried in a poem.
The Crying of Lot 49 by Thomas Pynchon has an extended play within the novel.
I like crappy horror/crime novels, and a lot of them are about writers trying to write novels and mixing with nasty killer-folk. Misery by Steven King. The Hook by Donald Westlake. Worst Nightmares by Shane Briant. The Death List by Paul Johnston.
The subject seems to be changing but let me throw a few titles in to the mix
Amazon Women on the Moon
The Blair Witch Project
Last Action Hero
Living in Oblivion
The Thriller video
Great movie. Classic sketches.
I fear though that the Guggenheim/Arquette sketch has become reality.
