Matthew Frost’s Fashion Film featuring Lizzy Caplan remains one of the finest spoofs I have ever posted on the site, and it’s interesting that it was that parody that led Kirsten Dunst to this short. Commissioned by Vs. Magazine for their latest cover shoot with the Spiderman star, it’s an excruciating look at celebrity culture through the prism of a very individual encounter.
Kirsten had seen and loved the Lizzy Caplan film, but while there Matthew maxed out on the details, adding layer upon layer of exquisitely-observed satire, this is much more restrained, revelling in the awkwardness of Kirsten’s encounter with two fan-girls.
“I’m just trying to talk about things that make me laugh, little observations that I’ve seen happen or I feel could happen maybe,” Matthew told Vs. Magazine. “It’s more about playing around within a tone that I like; everything is scripted but should never feel like it. Having
these amazing actors involved helps a great deal. They make me look good.”
You can watch the film above or over at the Vs. website.
