five wikipedia pages i looked at recently:
spent somewhere between 2-6 days thinking about this film. watched it directly after reading the wikipedia page. felt it 'fully lived up' to what i hoped it would be. found the full thing on megavideo shortly afterwards. also, incidentally, learned how to circumvent megavideo's 70min time limit (just clear your cookies, etc., possibly reset your internet if you have wifi and return to the site).
only found out about this film last night. felt extremely interested in the premise of the film but not sure if i could actually watch it. have now spent well over 90mins thinking about the central premise. not sure if i would have spent less time thinking about it if i'd just gone ahead and watched it, or whether it would haunt me for the rest of my life.
looked at this one for about 4 seconds with almost 0% interest.
felt excited about this film, but felt let down by the 3-5 clips i subsequently watched on YouTube. now have pretty much no interest in viewing the whole film.
Crispin Best emailed me the link to this page. thanks, Crispin. felt like he was mildy 'ribbing me', maybe. didn't mind being 'mildly ribbed' if that was, indeed, his intention. had already seen this wikipedia page sometime in the past year or two (probably late at night, drunk, possibly during a moment of 'extreme [something-or-other]' while searching for my own name on wikipedia). felt unsure whether or not to email Crispin back pretending i didn't know about it. have, so far, left the email unanswered. sorry, Crispin.
