mySpace: the Movie

The AP today chronicles the outrageous fortune of David Lehre, a budding filmmaker who exhibits all the precocious insouciance of Scorsese and all the cinema verite of Von Trier: girl_throwing_up.gif

Lehre’s 11-minute short parodies the habits of the popular social networking site. It is told in five scenes, beginning with an underwear-clad teen who vainly takes pictures of himself in the bathroom until his mothers barges in. Another scene features a showdown between a boy and his girlfriend who demands his password to view incriminating photos on his page. The final scene shows a partygoer – an actor portraying MySpace’s co-founder Tom Anderson – vomiting while his friends capture it on camera.

Yes, friends: Be of good cheer. The future of cinema is safe, thanks to MTV, which has given him a first-look deal.

I think I need to hire an actor to portray me vomiting, too. Now wouldn’t that be meta?
