I am interested, fascinated, in love with the détournement as a form, with the situationists as people and with acts of ventriloquism designed to overthrow capitalism. I am also, as evinced above and perhaps you’re t/here with me, a firm believer that within the major streams of media, comedy is the space in which that greatest formal innovations/play are (or have been) possible. Buster Keaton in Sherlock, Jr. Half of Annie Hall. Tim and Eric (now). In their own small ways, these are the big budget avant-garde films you’ve been waiting for.
