Scream

Scream ★★★½

”Oh my god, he’s making a re-quel!”

-Seduce and Destroy, could I have your home phone with the area code please?

Umm yeah, I don’t want to order anything,… I have a situation… a situation that’s just come up and it’s really pretty serious and I don’t know who to talk to, or what I should do, but maybe you could put me in touch with somebody if I explain myself?

-What’s the situation?

Okay, great,,, let me see if I can explain myself without sounding too crazy… My name is Cam and I’m writing a write-up on Letterboxd. And I’ve just seen a movie and it’s very meta. Like it’s ultra self-referential and it’s very meta and I’m trying to describe how meta it is…. Hello? Are you there?

-I’m here, I’m listening.

Okay, so, it’s like one of those pictures of picture of a picture kind of things…

It’s like looking in a mirror and seeing a mirror which is reflecting the mirror you are looking in and that’s reflecting the mirror….

It’s like, if this movie was a campfire song it would be an endless round of “Row Row Row Your Boat” all sung in various languages simultaneously and with a lots and lots of echo….

It’s like, If this entire movie was a single scene in Super Troopers it would be that stoner in the car screaming, “I’m already really meta, I can’t get any more meta!..."

Look, I know this sounds silly, like this is the scene in the movie where the guy's trying to get ahold of his thoughts, you know, but this is that scene. And I think they have those scenes in movies because they're true, you know? Because they really happen. See, this is the scene in the movie where you help me out….
