I’m going to go out on a limb and say the next hundred years probably holds some pretty monumental shit for the human race. If my extensive knowledge of 80s sci-fi cinema has taught me anything, it’s that there’s definitely going to be robots, LEDs everywhere- with crap tonnes of bloom- and more totalitarianism than Stalinist Russia. Well, if that doesn’t sound like a whole lot to look forward to, there’s always the new Robert Rodriquez short film, slated for a 2115 release.
No, that wasn’t a typo. The director of Sin City and Machete has teamed up with the enigmatic John Malkovich to create a short film entitled ‘100 Years’, which won’t see a public release for,well, 100 years.
Details about the flick are minimal at best, other than it’s apparently “emotionally charged”, c0-stars Marko Zaror and Shya Chang, and has already been sealed away in a time capsule.
Now, here’s the point of contention. The short film has been made in conjunction with a new luxury cognac brand, Louis XIII, to promote the company’s 100 year aging process for their liquor. This begs the question, is this just a novel piece of advertising or some truly, first rate avant-garde cinema? Alas, none of us are ever going to find out…
