Carter. I already had an issue with artists who go by only one name. A film by Carter. Carter emails James Franco. James Franco is an attractive actor who received acclaim for his recent role as Harvey Milk's partner in the film, Milk. James Franco is also known for all kinds of silly roles like Spiderman's friend and enemy, Harry, and as a star of The Pineapple Express. James Franco was also the super hot guy that Lindsay had a phat crush on in the kick-ass show, Freaks and Geeks that no one but me and Sean care about. But, I digress.
Erased. This is what happens when something is removed so that it can barely be seen anymore. Apparently Robert Rauschenburg Erased like 90% of one of William De Kooning's paintings and it became a big hit. My source, James Franco. So, Carter decides to make a movie with the similar intent. Basically, James Franco is supposed to watch old films and try to recreate the roles using about 10-50% of his acting ability. He is also supposed to star as Julianne Moore and Rock Hudson and his conversations from other films appear in the film. Basically, it's a piece of crap that everyone is afraid to admit is a piece of crap for fear of looking like they didn't get it.
Petroleum Jelly. You may also know it as vaseline. Yep, a whole film made from 8 previous sculptures using petroleum jelly. Matthew Barney, ever heard of him? If not, good for you.
Bjork. Famous Icelandic singer with quite a bit of musical talent, some acting ability, and no fashion sense. Bjork dates Barney, they make a movie. There is a lot of vaseline. They become animals, slice off their flesh and eat it. Silliness. Shanannagins (sp) but no one will admit it and the SF MOMA falls for it as well.
Drawing Restraint 9 = more Bjork than you ever needed to see. Erased James Franco = more James Franco than anyone ever needs to see.
