Van Gogh, The Remakes

In a tribute to murdered Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh, friends are remaking some of his films in American versions. “Each film will be shot on digital video in the rapid, three-camera style used by the late director. Filming will last only two weeks per title to keep the budget low and the intensity high. Unlike the last few of van Gogh’s films, none of the remakes focus on religious or political themes, sticking instead to the sexy, provocative themes and edgy characters that made van Gogh both a pariah and favorite at home.”
