Ever wonder how the Super Bowl might play out if the TV broadcast was directed by your favourite movie director? Apparently, somebody over at Slate Magazine did. Allow me to present Super Bowl XLV as envisioned by Quentin Tarantino, David Lynch, Wes Anderson, Jean-Luc Godard, and Werner Herzog.
Okay, I have a few more suggestions for possible directors. (Anybody out there think they can turn a film around by Sunday?)
Sam Peckinpah: The Super Bowl as violent, bloody revenge flick.
George Lucas: The Super Bowl as intergalactic struggle to bring the Force into balance.
Woody Allen: The Super Bowl as intellectual sex-comedy.
Oliver Stone: The Super Bowl as convenient cover for Military-Industrial Complex plan to take over government.
George A. Romero: The Super Bowl as dark satire on human condition, featuring flesh-eating football zombies.
