In one of this year’s more entertaining viral trends, “Thousands of Tumblr users have been making posters, soundtracks, drawings and fan fiction for a 1973 Scorsese film starring Robert De Niro – but it never existed”. It’s a spy film called “Goncharov” and it’s pretty funny.
I decided to make fake film titles and concepts for other directors that sound feasibly real.
Quentin Tarantino - Blood Shed
Follows two private investigators hired to investigate a missing family member involved in the Jonestown Cult in 1978 Guyana. The PIs are able to track down the family member and kill Jim Jones, stopping the mass suicide.
Richard Linklater - The Razzle Dazzle
A meandering hang-out movie following young adults just out of college living in New York City. For the first time in their lives, they struggle to adapt to a life without a clearly laid out path.
Jordan Peele - Too Late
A drug that (seemingly safely) keeps people awake for 20 hours a day becomes increasingly popular in the US. Long term use starts to cause people to lose their minds and sometimes turn violent. We follow a couple who navigate this new world, with social commentary on grind culture and poor work-life balance.
Kathryn Bigelow - Kiev
A still-unclassified true story about a group of American operatives tasked with sabotaging Russian weaponry in the war in Ukraine.
