The Shining Recut


Today is the Ides of March. The Ides of March marks the date of Julius Caesar's imminent death that was dramatized in Shakespeare's play. Backstabber (curated by Dave Dyment for Art Metropole, 2001) was an exhibition for the Ides of March. There's a bit of romanticization in both Shakespeare's and Dyment's work, so to honor all of that, here is the pinnacle of recut trailers (and with a bit of Ides in it too). You know the scene where Jack hurls the baseball down a long corridor? The first time I saw neochosen's trailer, I felt like that baseball -- happy-go-lucky-ly. That is how much I wish I came up with this first.
