Mashed Up

February 3rd, 2011

Here’s a well-made documentary segment–the second in what’s supposed to be a four-part series–about the constant regurgitation of pop culture. This one looks at how movies build on the cinematic past, with a specific emphasis on Star Wars and (after the credits) Kill Bill. While I didn’t learn anything about the influences behind Star Wars that I didn’t already know, it was cool to see the specific shots from The Searchers, Dam Busters and Yojimbo side-by-side with their Lucasfilm counterparts.
