    Subject: Two films in one?
    Date: Aug 20, 2002
    Sender: Sam ScottPrevious | Next


    Not sure I agree that the two stories were unrelated. The punchline of the first short is the teacher announcing something like, "I don't know about what really happened, but once you write it, it becomes fiction." Seemingly a reference to the way the girl makes a victim out of herself in the story when there are strong hints that she enjoyed the original encounter.

    Then in the second part, the movie itself causes the audience to feel some sympathy for Scoobi, but the documentary version, the film within a film, makes fun of everyone, including Scoobi. Isn't there a relationship there? The story being told two different ways and obscuring "what really happened"?

    Cheers,
    Sam.
