Mashup: An Entire Life Told In Film Clips

Using clips from more than 150 films, this video from YouTube channel MovieClipsTrailers tells the story of an entire life.

Beginning with birth (via clips from '2001: A Space Odyssey', 'Irreversible', and 'F is for Fake'), the film heads through childhood, the teenage years - complete with hormones and glowing eyes, to marriage, having kids, and eventually to death.

The sheer number of movies referenced is dizzying, but it's all tied together with voice over from Orson Welles in 'F is for Fake' (quoting Rudyard Kipling's poem 'The Conundrum of the Workshops') and Nicolas Cage's Charlie Kaufman in 'Adaptation'.
