Itís a 33-year-old idea for a movie by an Ďoutrageousí Danish artist who died a decade ago. Non-movie? Itís a non-entity.







Agreed. Crucify it.

Like the 33 year bit.

I don't know anything about it, but I'd be glad for it to be removed as there is a lot of duplication with this film and many non-duplicates could also be transferred there.

Now classified as a miniseries.

My Country, My Country is one episode of the T.V. series P.O.V., so this makes no sense at all.

If television documentary films are no longer allowed, can we still have short videos for children, such as this and these?

This T.V. countdown cannot be deemed to be a film by any stretch of the imagination.

This is less like a film than the Louis Theroux documentaries. (I have actually seen it. He was also not a boy: the title annoys me whenever I see it.) It's just a typical one of the Channel 4/Channel 5 Bodyshock-type programmes.

This was conceived and assembled as a theatrical release and met with great success. I saw it in a cinema. It definitely qualifies.

Well, I'm not sure that assembling sketches can really be deemed a 'concept'. And just as we are now not just going with whatever the I.M.D.B. classifies as a film, we also shouldn't just go with whatever has been shown at a cinema, since this includes live opera, football matches &c.

It's a film, period. Just as Ten From Your Show of Shows is a film. This is something completely different from showing legitimate theatre, sports events and opera in HD video in cinemas.

Nothing from that article makes it sound like anything other than a bunch of sketches, so it only seems to be a 'film' by virtue of the fact that it was at the cinema. Anyway, unlike certain people in this thread, I'm not going to go on a witch hunt against particular films: Benj is free to act on whichever he pleases.

This has a 'host', something that is very characteristic of a T.V. programme, not a film. It also seems to have been made by a small, local T.V. company.

After lemmy's prompting, I'll also have to nominate this as seeming to have no characteristics of a film.
