10 Pieces of Oldboy Trivia You Can’t Find in Google

I recently watched Spike Lee’s US remake of Oldboy, the famous Korean film I’ve never seen.

I quite liked it, and am not sure how/why it was met with such malaise. Maybe the original was just the good. (Not that more than 1% of These United States of America had heard of it.)

In any, case, I had a ton of unanswered questions after my viewing, and went to Google, and what’s up with the extra comma at the start of this sentence.

No answers to any of this, btw:

oldboy trivia

I feel like that comma is so beautiful now.

Shia LaBeouf and the Curious Case of The Campaign Book

shia labeouf campaign bookIf you missed the entire Shia Labeouf Plagiarism Scandal of 2013/14, it can be summarized in one sentence.

Shia used indie comic creator Dan Clowes’ story as the defacto script and storyboard for a short film he directed.

He subsequently got busted, plagiarized all his apologies, and then called the whole thing performance art and a commentary on our current online/creative culture.

Somewhere in Shia’s process, I got inspired to write a short story called Shia LaBeouf and the Curious Case of The Campaign Book, which is available on Amazon for 99 cents.

The plot:

Attorney Howard Cantour deals with a legal, moral, and spiritual crisis when his client Shia LaBeouf decides to publish a book of plagiarized material as his own work.

For the record, Howard Cantour has the same name of the main character in Shia’s plagiarized short film.

In addition to that, over 30% of the rest of text is lifted word-for-word (with some adjustments) from quotes, Tweets, and writings of Shia’s own.

What’s the point?

Showing up in Google searches related to Shia LaBeouf and plagiarism, of course.

ART.
