SPOOK CENTRAL Threatens To Do For GHOSTBUSTERS What ROOM 237 Did For THE SHINING (Or Is It Just Taking The Piss?)
That the filmmakers can equate deep meaning and politics to Ghostbusters is both hilarious and brilliant. Is it a film about obesity? The politics of banning smoking? Women's control of their sexuality and bodies? Either way, it is delightfully compulsive about the populist 1984 blockbuster in a way that is endearing, particularly, since Ivan Reitman's film (unlike The Shining, is not even close to the art house sphere.)
Please let it be real, because I rather hope this sort of documentary becomes a nano-genre of sorts.
