This is the movie that someone from CL recommended to me. Which really doesn't happen often enough. Few days ago I find @Chou on chat talking about how subtle advertizement messes up with you without even knowing. And she told about this movie, which I watched and I had some good time watching it.www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4Ng2P3zxfM
This is a movie by Morgan Spurlock, and I know the guy from his movie "Super Size Me" where he, while investigating effects of fast-food, committed to eating McDonald's food only for one whole month. So, I knew that the guy liked to pretty much embrace the topic he works with at the time. And yes, here he did the same thing.
The movie is about product placement in movies. And pretty much the whole movie is this guy working on getting companies to sponsor the movie and doing different product placement. Or talking to lawyers about product placement. Or making image research. Or working on advertisement. Or... well, you get the idea. You won't get any historical information out of this, but you will be able to see the insides of a whole process, which is pretty interesting. Cause we all have an idea, how it all works, but we really do not know the details.
The movie is smart, informative, interesting and funny. As I said, it shows the inner working or product placement really well. And hell, the big amount of work was made to make the film. Which actually pretty much shows that exact work to make the film... which may be redundant, but not in a bad way. Now, the thing that, I think, was not funny addressed is the actual subtle advertisement in actual movies. That would also be an interesting theme, I think. But still, I enjoyed this movie, and so I do recommend it to you.
Also, do post your thoughts on products placement in movies. Do you care about it? Do you like or dislike it? Did you buy something because you say it in a movie? Things like that.
