The Arsehole Gene

It may be a brother, a sister, a father, a mother, or a co-worker. Whoever it may be, we understand. May the healing begin.

After years of investigation, a group of European scientists had discovered that the vulgarly called ‘arseholes’ are actually suffering a genetic mutation that conditions their behaviour. This discovering had opened a door to end with the unfair stigmatization of this group of patients. Understanding how the disease works is the first step to the cure, but there’s a lot of work to do before that moment arrives, including informing the citizenship about its existence. Because arseholes… are just sick people.

Clark “Gonzomentary” on Film Threat and LA Web Fest

From Gonzomentary.com

What results from Warwick’s footage is a “gonzomentary,” a mix of fourth-wall busting filmmaking, mockumentary, Gonzo journalism and whatever else can be added into the mix, which includes: Uncle Binky the pedophile clown; a Christian producer/investor who wants the film to contain no swearing, no drinking and no drugs, right before she has a crisis of faith and becomes a mime; a silent film; Tito the drug dealer, who is actually a British actor (David Proch) stuck in a Method acting Hell and Warwick’s own descent into madness while chronicling the adventures of Clark and J.C. And penises. Lots of penises.

Clark: A Gonzomentary Part 1 is a whole bucket of crazy, and I really enjoyed it for all of its insanity. At no point did I really have a grasp on what I was watching, as it constantly turns in and over on itself. Even when I’d come up with a criticism to lodge at it, the film itself would find a way to address it.

The Conspiracy Mockumentary

Here we go again, another Hollywood movie (well it’s sort of indie, but still being released by a big studio) making conspiracy theorists out to be completely crazy. On the other hand, the trailer makes it look a whole lot better than the Mel Gibson attempt at the same.

The Conspiracy is directed by Christopher McBride and features Aaron Poole, James Gilbert, Peter Apostolopoulos, Angela Besharah, and Laura de Carteret. The official synopsis: “A documentary about conspiracy theories takes a horrific turn after the filmmakers uncover an ancient and dangerous secret society.”

Afghanistan Getting Its Own Politically-Charged Version Of ‘The Office’ Sitcom

The Office was a hit in England before it became a hit in the States. With the mock-documentary, hand-cam style of filming, Afghanistan is now getting it’s own version entitled The Ministry. Daily Mail reports:

Rather than being set in a Slough paper manufacturing firm, ‘The Ministry’ is based in the war-torn country’s Ministry of Garbage. The mock-documentary has been filmed in exactly the same way as Ricky Gervais’ BBC comedy.

Footage of the characters addressing the camera directly, as if being interviewed, is interspersed with scenes of them apparently going about their working lives. The comedy, which will be broadcast on Afghanistan’s largest commercial television station Tolo TV later this year, features a sleazy manager, a dozy security guard and a man-hating female secretary.
