The Web

How much did they have to pay for Bill Gates to feature?

Say what you want about Nathan Fielder's The Web but under no circumstances should it be held in higher ragards than Me Farting On Command, the true winner of the Easter Los Angeles International Film Festival (E.L.A.I.F.F.) in my eyes. The Web may be the flashier, more commercial of the two, yet behind this is a movie that lacks soul, spine and most of all, as stated by retired California judge Anthony Filosa, a movie that lacks plot. It's yet another mainstream cash grab that aims to make up for it's poor quality by hiring stars such as Johnny Depp and Bill Gates. The film doesn't even provide adequate screen time for some of its hot young talent such as William Wang (customer #1) and Gabrielle Gold (costomer #5). Me Farting On Command may not be a masterpiece but it's risky, it's raw and it shows talent. For me, this is what cinema is all about. My respect for E.L.A.I.F.F. judge and industry legend Crayton Smith, uncredited script supervisor on Bonnie and Clyde and credited script supervisor on The Wild Bunch, has gone right down.
