Short Cuts - the vlog where Cinema Eclectica's Graham takes a look at deeper aspects of movie culture - is back. This week, he's wondering whether misremembering details of movies can lead us to a greater understanding of their appeal?
We've all done it - thinking Humphrey Bogart said "Play it again, Sam", remembering Sinbad playing a genie in the '90s. Graham has a very particular false memory of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, one which made him enjoy Kingdom of the Crystal Skull a lot more. And if that isn't a case for the miraculous powers of faulty memories, we don't know what is.
