Enough already with spoof commentaries !

The cod commentary track on the Coen Bros Blood Simple
was bad enough but now Verhooven has one on the new
region 2 release of Basic Instinct. An alleged English professor
called Camille La Paglia talks about the empowered woman
and the eroticised gaze all through the movie (or I assume
she does because I could only take about three minutes of this
"joke").

I'm pretty sure she is a real person. I believe she is a very outspoken feminist. I'm not doubting that the commentary track sucks though.

I am pretty sure that the "COMMENTARY WITH FEMINIST CRITIC CAMILLE PAGLIA" (as it is written on my dvd case - Region 1 release) is real.
I listened to the whole thing while I was doing dishes and cooking one day, so wasn't giving it my full attention, but I don't remember it being a bad commentary. Actually I thought both commentaries and the discussion of the controversy of the film's release to be interesting since I don't remember much of the media surrounding this film.....I guess I just wasn't paying attention at the time (I was in high school).

Im just a guy from R1, but there are some great "spoof" commentaries. Just looks at This Is Spinal Tap, its a sequel in itself.

Camille Paglia is probably the world's "leading" feminist. I believe she has a column in Salon.com

Reading Keith's The Maxx taught me a thing or two.

Man I used to love that comic. Sam Kieth had/has so much style. Does he still do comics. Last thing I saw him do was a comic about a crerature that was also an engine.
