Post Shia LeBeouf made a movie about film critics, junkets, etc.
http://vimeo.com/81777239.

I liked it -- sort of a neat takedown of holier-than-thou critics, and highlights the inherent awkwardness and stupidity of junkets.

Private now, but I think because he's being accused of plagiarism or something?

He's been accused of ripping off Justin M. Damiano by Dan Clowes, otherwise known as the author of Ghost World.

Which, really, it's either an almost direct ripoff or a god damn miracle.

The plot thickens. His apology about plagiarism was plagiarized.

Perhaps it was precognitive plagiarism. Happens to me all the time. I'll see something that I just recently came up with and it turns out that someone else thought of it and developed it before I could.

From what I’ve read he didn’t just copy the idea; he lifted most of the text word for word. It was basically an adaption without any credit given to Clowes.

If this turns out to be some kind of viral marketing scheme cooked up by LaBeouf and Clowes, I'll be very impressed.
