The Hollywood Ouroboros


Today the wonderfully nasty Hollywood gossip blog Defamer points to the media blog Low Culture, which noted that a recent Entertainment Weekly story looks awfully familiar to one of Low Culture’s own pieces, which itself noted that several elements of the new Olson Twins “film” New York Minute look awfully familiar to scenes from the movies Ferris Bueller, Moonstruck, The First Wives Club, and There’s Something About Mary.

Is piracy v. hot or what?

(And, yes, I stole the idea for this entry’s title from Charlie Kaufman’s and Spike Jonze’s self-reflexive flick, Adaptation, which itself lifted an Ouroborus reference from the Folklore and Mythology Corporation, also known as — gasp! — the public domain.)
