(Source: IFC.com) Truffaut used to say that a movie should have four ideas a minute. Well, Fran├žois, say hello to “Star Wars: Uncut“, a full-length user-generated remake of “A New Hope” chopped up into 15-second segments — four per minute.

The result is a staggering 2,161 separate amateur directors overall, a major sugar-buzz of crowdsourcing, “Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation” turned viral and opened to the online masses. It’s not done yet, but the trailer’s below. If nothing else, it’s an inadvertent summary of every internet YouTube/meme trend of 2009: amateur CGI, hand-drawn comic-strip animation, strange-looking people in weird masks, IM conversations and the inevitable “Big Lebowski” homage.

I’m sure a lot of people out there will love this: intentional camp seems to have become the ultimate form of reverence. Now let’s just see how long it’ll take for the LucasFilm lawyers to kill it.
